This is the second time I’ve done this race, but it was a completely different course and longer.
The race is run so well with super stocked in stations even for an average/slow runner. Lots of salty and sweet options. Course varies between clean single track, super technical rock and root filled single track and dirt road. I don’t think there was anywhere near as much dirt road in 2017 and it got annoying with all of the big trucks. The Red Canyon section is so epic it makes the race but if you are someone who is worried about exposure beware there is some high single track with big drops. I didn’t really study the elevation profile, which is my fault. I saw that it was 8600 feet over 50 miles and tried to make my 20 and 25 mile runs between 4 and 5000 feet of climbing. The problem is the climbing, here is deeper and more concentrated with lots of runnable trail in between. The steep up FRIED my hip flexors and some of the rocky steep down was too steep to run at all. Oh and there is a long climb at mile 46 with a very steep descent. My last 12 miles were very slow. My quads were done. I would train different next time and get those puppies in top top shape.
