Steven Ericson's thoughts:

Pre-race: A sufficient level of communication leading up to the race, including check-in information the week beforehand.

Expo: The expo was smaller, but OK. Major running stores in town had booths with discounted nutrition, socks, shoes, and apparel. A few other local vendors plus a few regional races were on hand.

Shirt/Swag: The race shirt was a nice, dri-fit long-sleeve shirt. Medal was inspired by the neon signage at Route 66 Historical Village, which adds a local cool factor to the medal. Post-race beers from Welltown Brewing were solid (choice between a light lager, pale ale, and Mexican lager). Post-race food was the typical banana and oranges, but some pizza from Simple Simon’s.

Aid Stations: There was 1 aid station in the middle of the course with water and Gatorade.

Course scenery: Course in Guthrie Green, which is a small park with a performance stage. The course goes through Downtown Tulsa before looping back to the finish/start area. It was nice, but nothing outstanding.

Elevation: Per my Strava data, I gained 110 feet in elevation. The course starts with a big hill on Boulder Avenue that crosses the railroad tracks, but quickly levels out and becomes quite easy to manage.

Overall: The start/finish area was easy to find with lots of street parking within a 10-15 minute walk. It was a nice tour of downtown Tulsa for a shorter distance race, and not one that was too physically challenging. The swag and post-race food/drink make it well worthwhile.
