Muskogee Run

A couple of weeks ago, I ran the inaugural Muskogee Run. 
The event was one of the many events that day held in conjunction with the 43rd annual 
Azalea Festival in  Muskogee Oklahoma.  The race was organized by the Muskogee 
Running Club and featured a 15k, 5k and 1 mile fun run. 
I ran the 15k event starting near downtown Muskogee.  After a short run through 
downtown, the course transitioned to the Centennial Trail for 5 miles.
The Centennial Trail is a paved railroad grade that was very flat.
There was only one hill of any consequence,  a 50 footer, close the end.
Then it's all downhill from there to the finish line.
This event has the potential to be fairly large as there aren't many 15k runs
in the springtime in our area. 
I  placed 2nd in age group.  However, awards were only given out to 1st
place in each age group.  

All in all this was a fun event and I would recommend it to anyone who wants
to get in a 15k early in the season.
