smaller, lowkey event
scenic course with rolling hills
part paved roads and part hard packed, smooth dirt roads
plenty of aid stations every few miles
great volunteers at aid stations and road crossings
course was one (longer) out and back and then 3.5mile loops. i liked this as we came by our cars and could get whatever needed from our own cars
loved the custom made finishers medal and homemade cookies

Classic race that has been around for many years. I ran the 50k. The first 11+ miles are mostly uphill, especially miles 7-11. The course is very open (ie no shade) with lots of great views of the Reno area. Once you get to Peavine Summit (highest point on course) there is a steep, rocky downhill for about a mile. From there it is easy running to the next station, after which you head back up the rocky hill to Pevine Summit. The last 11 miles are sweet single track downhill trails to the finish. Course was very well marked and aid stations were great, with plenty of food and drink options and knowledgeable and helpful folks. I would definitely recommend this race.

Stayed in Ogden and drove to Huntsville to catch the buses to the start at 645. Was pretty cold at start line waiting for the race start so bring a throw-away shirt or mylar blanket. The first about 18 miles are significantly downhill with beautiful scenery. From there the course flattens out and might feel difficult after the downhill. I personally struggled the last 5 miles, but was still able to get a BQ. Finish line had plenty of shady places to rest and a few things to eat/drink

Was and still is one of the iconic trail races in the US. Lots of hype and lots of activities pre-race at race HQ. The race starts with a several mile climb up the escarpment. The top gives a great view of lake tahoe area. From there it’s rolling hills, mostly single track all the way to the canyon portion of the race. The canyons are hot and the descent and ascents are significant, with Devil’s Thumb (47) and Michigan Bluff (55) climbs taking almost 2 miles each. Once you reach Foresthill (62miles-super fun and exciting aid station) you can have a pacer join you and if your legs are feeling good the rolling (mostly) downhill to the American river crossing can be fast. Once crossing the river its a short, steep climb to Green Gate (80). The final 20 miles are “runnable” single track, although still rolling. There is a good bit of uphill in the final miles to reach the road at Robie Point aid station(99) and a steep hill just past it, but from there its a joyous downhill to the track at Placer HS and the finish line
