    The long sleeve T-Shirt and unique Black Bear medal are terrific. For this inaugural event, the course had about 350 feet of elevation change overall, with a nice little hill just before the end. The course goes about 2 miles out, then twice up and back on a 2.25 mile (or so) paved trail through a beautiful park setting, then back to the finish. The course was well-marked with arrows on the pavement and signs. You can’t control the weather, and it did rain, so puddles were an issue; however, fortunately, it let up for most of our time on the course. I carried my own nutrition, so have no input on the water stops. We do intend to go back and do this one as often as we can. Highly recommended for the pleasant people, the area and the SWAG!
