    Cayuga Trails has been on my list of “must do” races for the past few years. I ran the marathon distance, not the 50 mile. Given the elevation gain, I wanted to try the shorter distance first. The 50 milers run the same course, but go out for a second time, minus an added lollipop section of the course. The course was marked very well, and the aid stations were plentiful. The race was very well organized from start to finish. Be prepared for lots of elevation gain, from long stone staircases to steep hills. The beautiful waterfalls and gorges will help take your mind off of your tired legs. The only reason I rated the swag a little low was because the shirt given is a little hard to read where the race name and distance are printed. The graphics should have been printed a little larger, in my opinion. I will also have to alter the length of the straps (tank top), as the shirt hangs way too low, even though I got a small. Finishers received a stainless steel pint glass, with race and distance printed on them, which was very nice. There was a good spread of food available at the finish. What really makes this race stand out is the difficulty of the course, coupled with unbeatable scenery, and it being so well organized. The race also tries to be as envirmentally conscious as possible, with asking runners to provide their own reusable cups (or using their handhelds) at aid stations, and providing food scrap bins for composting. My performance at this race was the best I could do, given that I was battling a bad chest cold. I would definitely love to run this race again, when I am feeling 100%!
