The race production was great in many conventional ways, but they were less than accurate about the level of difficulty of this course. I enjoyed the challenge, but more honesty is needed about the course itself. A bit over 1/3 of the 2800 runners finished in over 3 hours. About 400 finished in over 3 1/2 hours and over 100 required over 4 hours. The course was supposedly greatly improved from 2017, and was described as “pavement and trail” , which is inaccurate. You are running in 2 to 4 inches of loose sand the vast majority of the race. Very little pavement. “Trail” is deep, loose sand covered washboard.
