Race Details

Lessons Learned from Race Reports

  • Don’t run anything in the beginning that you wouldn’t run after mile 50 because the start is so hard, starting out with 10 miles of uphill
  • The top part of the first descent is very technical and not runnable, so not a nice treat after a tough uphill to start
  • Sections of exposed ridgeline, which makes it tough in any weather condition, and it’s usually hot and sunny
  • Have to climb Mt. Wagner and retrieve a flag
  • Aid stations are sometimes fairly far away, ie if you’re walking ~30 minute miles, 10 miles takes a very long time!
  • Pacers are really helpful
  • Poles could be useful
  • Loooooong, steep, exposed climbs
  • Running a point to point course is a new, unique challenge
  • (Really good lessons learned here)
