What's the attraction to this event? I'm having trouble seeing it :-P

Looks like one has to do a lot of driving back and forth because of the no-race-day packet pickups. And I cringe at the idea of 3 hours in a car on the same day following the first race.

Unless you regularly do twin long runs on both Sat/Sun, I'd say this is tempting fate because you aren't leaving any recovery time, more apt to get injured, no way to PR (or even come close) and less likely to enjoy since you'll have to do both races slower than you're capable of doing one race, etc.

Seems like a way for the organizer to get people to fork over more money for an additional shirt and medal without a race.

I saw that race listed and am still looking into it--hopefully it won't sell out before I make up my mind. There is also a 24 hour race that is run in Des Moines in October for a number of years, but I'm not sure it's going to be held--at least it's not 'open' yet to registration.
