Andrew HanneySep 22 2022, 11:02amLooking forward to this. I haven't been there before and I don't find any previous race reports, I see the elevation and route on the map. Could somebody give a brief description of whats in store? Is it all on fireroad, or trails, or both. Looks like a decent steady climb from the outset and then some rolling hills basically. Thanks, Andy.
Patricia RyanSep 22 2022, 11:16amHi Andy, it a trail runner's dream route. Mostly nice trails with technical bits thrown in, small amount of fire road and a tiny bit of tarred road. Despite today's rain, it should be dry enough.
Andrew HanneySep 22 2022, 2:45pmThanks Patricia, sounds like it will be worth the trip!
