I liked this run. I hiked the trails a week or two before running out here so I knew what I was in for. The temperature was right around freezing when the run started and was suppose to drop during the run. The course held up extremely well for the weather conditions. I also did not think many people would show up. It was packed. The course was relatively flat and fast. The 10K was two loops. The first loop seemed much flatter than the second loop even though it was the same loop. I felt more of the ups and downs of the course my second time around. There was only one stretch of real bad mud but it was somewhat avoidable. I had a good trail 10K time of 1:06:12. I was going for a sub one hour time but the conditions did not allow for plus the one hill was a tough one twice.
This was my third trail race of the year and was a good time despite the weather. I might complain but a really love trail running not what the conditions are outside.
