This is the route and elevation for this weekend’s Hawkeye 25k and 50k race. This is a 15 mile lap so one lap for the 25k’ers and two for the 50k racers. I have not see an elevation profile yet for the race so I used GPS Visualizer to generate the elevation profile for me. It looks to be some typical Iowa terrain.
There is a green arrow at every mile mark.

Elevation profile looks to be a lot of little hills up and down. That is pretty typical for Iowa. I am sure it will get me huffy and puffing despite it not having anything too crazy. At mile 11 there is a water crossing. Mile 11 is the second most left arrow. You can see we cross a little sliver of land at that point. I guess the water is high so we are planning to get our feet wet and maybe up to the knee. Looks like a fun time!
