    The race was a mix between very hilly technical trails ( 1000 feet of elevation gain) and bike paths. There was a good walk from the packet pick up area to the start line. The course started on a bike path and turned onto a narrow wooded trail. The turns on the course were marked by very small blue plastic flags, and I missed the turn from the bike Path onto the trail. Let’s just say I did some bonus miles. After that initial mishap, I was paranoid about saying on the course for the rest of the race.
    It had rained the evening before and the trail was slick and muddy. There were very technical areas about the the inclines and declines were somewhat slick. This is definitely a race to run in trail shoes. The path or somewhat narrow, but the trails very enjoyable if you enjoy off road running.
    At about the halfway point, the race transitioned from the trail to a shaded bike path which ran along the shoreline of Lake Arthur. Despite the extra distance, I really enjoyed the scenery on this course. The finisher medal for the race was simple, but I really liked the gear bag that was included for participants.
    The volunteers and staff on the course were very friendly and helpful. Bottled waters and Gatorade’s were provided every 2 miles or so. They were also occasional snacks at some aid stations as well.
    If you are adventurous and enjoy off-road hiking/running, I would highly recommend this course if you can get the western Pennsylvania.
