Don’t be misled by the elevation chart for this race. The downhills will beat you up. Also, it starts at about 5,500 feet so unless you live at higher elevations it will take a toll on you as well. The hill at Biosphere starting at mile 10 is fairly brutal, then you end with a big but short hill at mile 23. Overall good course and nice small race but definitely far from easy.

Given who the race organizers were, and given all the pre-race hype of it being such an exclusive race, I expected a bit more. Other than seeing Meb on the course, which was awesome, there wasn’t much more. I did like the competitive nature of the field and like the concept of a serious half marathon vs just a fun race with a bunch of bands and costumes. Course was tough with the long brutal hill in the very beginning (where I pulled a hamstring sadly) so doubtful you got many PR’s. Expected more elite racers to be there and surprised and disappointed that Dave McIlivray wasn’t there. Obviously they only used his name. Not sure whether I’ll do this one again or not.
