This is hands down one of the funnnest, hardest and most beautiful races. For the 30K you start with a quick wram up lap mile, followed by 2 miles up a steep switchback, cruise along the peak for a couple miles, followed by a blazing 3 mile downhill on switchback, a lovely rolling 3 miles on a wide fire road, followed by a 1.5 mile climb up “Mt. Doom”, cruise along the peak for a couple more miles, and then back down the two miles of steep switchbacks. WOW!
If you are looking for a chalenging race this is great. The race directors are the greatest people who really care about the race and the racers. The volunteers and race support is amazing.
