Not since Candlelight 12 hour have I felt this kind of joy in a race.

There are some races that just inspire joy, and this is one. It is one I knew, last year, that I wanted to race - and I made the right choice. The scenery is stunning; the trail is pleasant and flat. The race directors are organized, nice and accommodating, and I can't say enough good things about the volunteers. This is truly a special race, and you can bet I'll be coming back.
