    We were greeted by very pleasant weather for the Badlands 24 hour run. We were given the choice between running a 11.5 mile loop or a shorter, 2.4 mile loop. Most of the runners chose to run the longer loop first, just so they could see the whole course. The scenery was great, with spectacular views from the top of the bluff. There were some pretty steep and long hills though, so after the first loop, most runners like me decided to do the shorter loop that had less elevation gain. I’m glad I did the longer loop first because of the scenery and wildflowers, but I could have probably gotten in a few more miles had I just run the shorter loop. The first half of the short loop was relatively flat, but there were a couple of short, steep, dips down into some draws. The second half had some long uphill stretches, but nothing too steep.

    The timing system was flawless, the race director and volunteers were very encouraging, but the aid station food was rather limited. There was no hot food, even at night, probably in order to reduce the risk of spread of the
    SARS-CoVid-19 virus. Water, Tailwind, bottled gatorade and an assortment of soft drinks in cans were provided for hydration.

    The race director reported that there were a record number of runners in the solo division, probably a result of most of the other races being canceled this year. Even with the mountain bikers and relay runners, it was a pretty small race.
