    This race was a lot of run – great support all the way through and mostly on trail. Beautiful scenery to enjoy and lots of good food at the end. Beautiful medal and I absolutely love my long sleeve tech tee, that I run in all of the time… still

    This was my second time running one of the The Bear Chase Trail Races – but first time doing the 100K. The time cut-off for the 100K is a little strict for us back-of-the-packers (other distances are very lenient though), so I had to push myself on this one, but I’m so glad I did! I managed to PR in the 50 Mile distance and go on to finish my first 100K at a faster average pace than any 50 miler I’ve ever done! It went really well – the course is fast for “Trail” running standards with a little over 4000′ of gain over the entire 100K/62.5 Miles. But it’s still definitely a trail race – ran mostly on singletrack with some nice hills thrown in, along with quite a few water crossings! Overall the production of this race is EXCELLENT. Very well organized, well marked, and well staffed. The volunteers at all of the aid stations were super helpful and nice. They had a nice variety off food at the aid stations as well, and the finishers SWAG is top notch. This is a great trail race in Denver’s foothills that I highly recommend, and a good opportunity to go for a PR!
