What an excellent race! Extremely well put together, amazingly marked, beautiful scenery and perfect weather… Makes one excellent race. We did the 5.5 mile loop, but they also had a half marathon.
The race was rated as difficult and uses the entire trail system at Hells Gate State Park. The elevation gain/loss on this race is 2200 feet. So it was hilly and the trail terrain was everything from rock beds to sand.
