    I loved this race, and you will too if you like scenery, challenging, and small races. It is a point to point, with the first 7 miles gravel (and chatter bumps). The views were well worth it.

    The race starts at a campground and a fire was going to warm up when we arrived. There were only about 50 runners, so we used the vault toilets at the campground. A short stroll to the road and we were on our way.

    Aid stations were exactly as described, volunteers were great. I carried the bear spray until Mike 12, and didn’t feel concerned at any time.

    Being a sea level flatlander I knew the course with the long ascents and descents would be tough and looking at splits from last year many appeared to blow up. So I went out very conservative and I’m glad I did!

    The swag included a mug which was really nice. The finish had all the necessities. We stayed at the Glacier Inn motel and it was a great location.

    The only scary part was at the end coming into town when vehicles were passing at 70 mph. About half moved over, the others almost blew me off the road at times.

    Overall, low key and I would do it again!
