Cornbelt Pre-Race: Looking Good
This contingent of 4 from Indiana were at the stadium when I was, checking out the track.
There were two volunteers setting up the staging area tent. They recruited some of the high school kids who were hanging around to help.
Of course I had to check out the facilities. There are two bathrooms, multiple stalls, several sinks, well-stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, and soap, on each side of the track.
One is a little bit longer in walking distance from the track, the other is closer but requires a small hill climb on the grass. I think I can handle a few hills.
It sounds like an exceptionally well-organized race. It's been going on for something like 30 years, so they have it down. These are the races that are the gems, they are low-key, well run, and memorable. The ones worth going back for. We'll see how it pans out tomorrow, but so far, I'm impressed.
