I just ran this in 2016. I thought it was a great race from start to finish. It's a looped course with the two large loops for the marathon distance and the shorter to finish off the 50k. It has a great mix of hills, mud, some technical single track and wide open dirt and gravel road. You get to work right quick as you hit a stream crossing and start in on one of the big climbs within the first mile-both exciting and terrifying for me knowing I have to do it a couple more times! The woods and variable terrain provided a great backdrop to help keep my mind off my tired legs. The downhills were super fun to run down and the volunteers and staff at the aid stations were friendly and supportive. Great race would do it again. The only knock against it might be it seemingly being a little shy of the full 50k distance, but not sure my legs minded in all honesty! :)

I ran this in 2016. I was impressed with how well run the race was. It starts off with a raffle based on bib numbers and basic instructions. It is 2 13 mile loops and a 5 mi loop. The course was well marked and the aid stations had great volunteers. The finish line had plenty of food and beer which was great. My only negative about the race was that it was short. The 13 mile loops were only about 12.3. Every runner I talked to had about 29.5 instead of 31. I would happily run a race run by this RD again and would do this race again as well.
