Non-Race Report: 13.1 Minneapolis.

November 2, 2011 § Leave a comment

This is long overdue, but I wanted to finally follow-up on the 13.1 Minneapolis from August.  You might remember that I received two complimentary registrations for this race that I gave away to readers.
I did hear back from one of the readers who had nothing but positive things to say about the race:
  • “nice race”
  • “well organized”
  • “lots of water stops for a half”
  • “decent fan support”
  • “enjoyed the course along the river”
  • “it looked like they had plenty of buses available”
  •  ” finisher’s medals were on par with major marathons”
I also wanted to see what some others had said about the race, the handy-dandy Google machine found these race reports:
  • Beth who used it as a training run.
  • Kkinnea who also used it as a marathon training run.
  • Cindi had a victory!
  • Caitlin who owned the race.
The only complaint I could find in these race reports was port-a-pottie related but that was even minor.
Overall, seems like a good race–the timing, mid August, is a little awkward to make it a Priority Race but as a couple of bloggers mentioned above did, it might work great as a training run for a Fall full or half.
Have you ever ran a big race that had ENOUGH port-a-potties?
Does August, in Minnesota, seem like the ideal time to run your Goal Race?
Did you run Minneapolis 13.1?
