Qs & As:

Q:    Does this race go through a swamp?  

A:    No . . . no it does not.

Q:    Is this a trail race?

A:    No and yes. But really no.  The races are all run on paved surfaces throughout the entire distance.  Some of that distance, though, is covered on the Wabash Cannonball Trail.  And even though it's called a trail, it's a paved bike path. So you'll be running on something called a trail but it's not a trail. Got it?
