Big Hills, Rain & Slick Mud. All the makings of a good trail race!
Looking for a hilly trail race, then you've found it.
The race started out in the upper-60's and after about an hour into the race, the rain came, and didn't stop until near the end of hte event. I ran with Kelly Baker and kept up a good pace until we hit the last big hill section called Perkins loop. The final part of the trail is rugged from all the horse traffic and it was mostly slick mud, so our pace quickly slowed down. Once to the top the last mile levels out a bit up top, and then it's a quick decent down the finishline. Mission accomplished!!
