The 50k race is made up of two loops and each loop is plenty difficult. There were great aid stations and volunteers this year and the course is as beautiful as it is tough. I didn't make it to the second loop but was able to enjoy a 25k finish.

This was my very first 50K Ultra! The course was incredibly challenging but the volunteers and organizers made this a truly enjoyable race. I am looking forward to its Silver Anniversary!

This was my first ultra, and I truly had a great first-time experience! Very tough course - physically and mentally. Wonderful volunteers, and gorgeous views. I would highly recommend this race!

This is a very cool 50K. I'm not a huge fan of loops but if you have to do them, this is a nice one. Definitely not an easy course. Lots of climbing, lots of exposed areas to sun, and a tough mental/physical challenge. This race sells out every year so don't wait till the last minute to register. I'm hoping that more sponsors realize the popularity and start coming out to support Nancy. Fun time and great people. The volunteers are always awesome here.
