Every now and then, there’s an eccentric relative, friend or neighbor that decides to throw you a curveball by NOT serving Turkey at Thanksgiving; they replace it with ham, shrimp, lasagna, tofu or something else that could easily be featured the other 364 days of the year. Some of what … MORE

    Great, scenic location! Course runs by 2 lakes.
    A 15k loop. Course is mostly single track through the woods. Plenty of rocks, roots, downed trees, and hills.
    Tons of AG awards, and great post-race spread!
    Overall, another awesome Pretzel City Sports event!

    This was only my second trail race and the day before the race we got several inches of rain which impacted the trail in some interestig ways.
    The bib pick up was easy on race day and there were porta potties and a real bathroom available to runners. It was in the high 30’s at race time and partly cloudy for the 500 or so racers.
    We started out on a paved section before being funneled into a single trail through the first of many deep puddles. There was no escaping the foot deep frigid water so we had to embrace the suck and splash through it. The trail was very rocky in sections and in others root bound and muddy. There was also one stream crossing and many, many puddles. A woman in front of me went down twice on a downhill with wet leaves. Choosing your footing wisely was a must on this trail.
    Elevation gain for this race was 1100 feet and if you chose the 30 or 50 K you got to do the 9 mile loop again.
    Overall it was a very well managed race. The food was adequate and I got a nice tech long sleeved shirt as part of registration. I finished 191 out of 302 in the 15K so I am happy with my results on a technical and tough course.
