    This is a fairly tough desert course – can’t be compared with its sister race OTHTC 50k in Ridgecrest. Heat, hills and sand are challenging factors which will strip you to who you are. Course is well marked. Desert scenery & trails leading to old mines are stunning. Indian Wells Brewery’s Cola/Ale and juicy oranges were my favorite from the aid-stations. Being a low profile race, the best part is the community which takes care of your needs and safety – volunteers sprayed water on me & put ice in my Buff during exposed sections.

    The course is tough but starting watching the sunrise in the desert and running up to the trees in the mountains? Priceless! Running against horses? Why not, we all have good and bad days LOL
    Prizes are great. Nice finishing medal/souvenir. You get to the finish line and get an empty glass with the event’s logo on it and you get to fill it with your favorite tap beverage at THE BREWERY, right there (and keep the glass). Beer should be it. YUMS! Then you get fed! And if you ran well you might get a belt buckle for your age group! The shirt is nice too.
    It got hot, but the last 7 miles of the marathon are downhill and aid stations every few miles make it totally runnable. I had a great race day and kicked butt.

    It was and is fun. Enjoyed it so much, I decided to give back. If you come you might see me as a volunteer. Gotta love this community! HAPPY TRAILS

    PAY ATTENTION – bring plenty of water. Stopped to help someone about 500 yards before the turn off to the finish, and after helping her went back on the trail JUST PAST the turn off so went an extra 3 miles. I FINISHED though lol! The tow people I stopped to help lacked water and one had no fuel whatsoever. repave to be self sufficient – but the AID STATIONS – GREAT!
