Most elevation gain for a race this year.
I was able to do the Candy Mountain Half, so I took advantage and signed up to run it with Dave Semanik. It's on some of my favorite trails and also some of the toughest. The Bill's Bad Ass Loop is no joke with 3 creek crossings and super steep hills. Switchbacks are not a thing on the Riding Run and Perkins trails but they ought to be. I was pleased to discover that this course featured the most elevation gain and loss of any race I've done this year, but I need to make darn sure I do a training run out there next year. Fun race, even in the rain!
