Trails were beautiful but a bit more challenging than I expected. All of those falling leaves covered the rocks and roots that one tends to trip over!

The hoodie was exceptionally nice and low-key – no advertising billboard on the back.

I’ve never attended a race before that provided a “night before” pasta meal as well as a “pre-race” breakfast. Quite a treat for that to be included in the registration.

Chris, the race director, was extremely responsive to questions before the race – that’s always an important factor in my decision to participate.

And, the sense of community – as with all trail races – is wonderful.

I was a DNF this year because I did thought (erroneously) I was rested from the previous week’s 40K. Not. But I’ll be back to try this one again.

This is always a well-directed, well-organized and enjoyable race. I’d done the half marathon a few times and upped it to the 40K this year. Cut off times are generous and Libby and Rich (race directors) take extremely good care of their runners. Pre-race info is thorough. Trail is quite scenic – most of it is easy to moderate with a couple of short but challenging sections.

With good reason, this race maxes out quickly. Beautiful trails, excellent post-race party, nice swag, very reasonable price, and smooth direction and production.

You can choose your “trail name” for your bib or take your chances and let them assign you one. I met Stinky Bottom and Mustang Sally. Let them assign you a name at your own peril. You’ll see their wonderful sense of humor throughout the race emails and website.
