    I’ve run this one twice, and will run it again in about a week. The middle part is the best, when you’re going through the mountain preserve. It’s good that they’ve moved the starting time up an hour, because those trails in the mountains can get pretty icy before things warm up.

    I’ve enjoyed doing the Double Dare. If you haven’t heard of this, it means you get to the finish line early and run from the finish line to the starting line, then turn around and run from the starting line back to the finish line (a 26.2-mile total distance). Since this is a mostly downhill course, that means your first 13.1 is mostly uphill, which is great training. Last year I even managed to take second in my age group even though I’d run a full marathon distance while everybody else had only run a half.

    I’m sad they’ve changed the name, though. I liked the “Dogtown” medals and the “Double-Dog Dare” swag. I loved their T-shirt designs. Last year I even took my dog with me on the final mile, so she could run across the finish line with me. I guess we’ll see how this year’s race shapes up.

    The Double Dare definitely sounds like a cool challenge but WOW, congrats on placing second in your age group! 🙌 To be able to do that after a 13.1-mile warmup run is crazy. Washington City sounds like a bit of a hidden gem in a state full of them. Appreciate your review Dave, and hope this year's race went well! LESS

    Well done! They may need to make it a Triple next year just to give the other runners a chance. ;)
