|Half marathon course, before the start and at the finish|
It was fun to hang around after the races and take in the whole race atmosphere. Both on Saturday and Sunday the kiddos ran the kids' races, complete with Dean Karnazes, Sponge Bob and other characters, plus finishers' medals - a nice family bonus!

Read about Kovas' first ultra adventure with Kim (of Ilax Studio) and Rachel (of Running in Real Life) over at Midwest Multisport Life.
All in all a wonderful experience for the whole family - we'll definitely be participating in future North Face Endurance Challenge races!
