18 degrees at the start of the new two loop 15k trail course. The first mile is the same from last year as the crowd lined up in the field, and then it was a drag race to the single track entrance. Some rolling hills followed, then up the big hill and onto the new section which is mostly on the bridal trail. Around mile 4 you bomb down the big hill and across the grass to the start of lap two. Good fun course, fun friends, and hot chocolate bar at the end of the race, perfect!
