Trail Maniacs’ Halloween at Hell’s Gate Race Recap

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.

There was an aide station at mile 4. The volunteers there were encouraging and very nice. And they had several things you could pick from. Including, which I had, water. 🙂

Afterward, they had a ton of prizes and delicious taco soup. I definitely will be doing more of the Trail Maniacs’ races.
