Being quite a while since I did a distance race, I was nervous about not being prepared after I saw the elevation gain of over 700 feet in the course description. (I’m 65) It turned out not as bad as I thought. The scenery was mostly woods and a creek, (I’ve done more scenic races than this) the course was quite difficult on the banked portions of the road between 7th and 9th miles. (That is the reason some of us ran on the upper part of the road outside of the designated lane, because it would’ve destroyed my hips/knees/ankles to run two miles on banked roads.) The last two miles being uphill on a concrete sidewalk was not nice for someone older like me. The race organization: phenomenal! They thought of everything that would make it a good experience. I did a decent time for someone my age, so of course, I thought it was a good race & nice place for a mini-vacation.
