solated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury.

In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America
This race was the model of efficiency. Packet pickup was quick and easy, and there were ample guides along the route, including cyclists checking on participants. More than enough water was available, and although the organizers probably had nothing to do with this, it was quite nice to have seventy degrees and a few light rain showers along the route...
What makes this race stand out? My first 1/2 marathon, also my first race ever. Packet pickup was easy, even for a beginner. Plenty of water stations. Went home and rested after the race so can't rate the post race entertainment.
GREAT RACE! Flat course with plenty of trees around for a break from the sun and heat. Well organized. It is wonderful to have a race that will allow your pet, that practices with you everyday. They also provide water for the dogs and as well as the owners. MTSU is a beautiful campus.
