There were good and bad parts, but I enjoyed the experience and would consider attending this race next year.
The race first appeared to be a little disorganized to begin with. There was only one volunteer looking through a pile of bibs, and after a long lineup to receive the bib, everyone had to go to another long lineup to get their matching chip. With previous experience, I thought this should have been avoided. With all the delays, the race started 30 mins late, which was a bit annoying for people that rushed to warm up on time.
The race course was decent. Most of it was on gravel and easy on the knees, however, this also means that it is not very fast and spectator friendly. I enjoyed running it maybe except for the U-turn.
Unfortunately, I have to save the best for last. The post race food was amazing! There were packed lunches for everyone! I could not believe it, especially with the price for these race (I got the special offer to do 3 DIX30 races for $60, but each race is only $30 if you sign up a week in advance), I was very happy since I did not eat breakfast.
The region is not too English friendly, but I would love to come back next year!
