Bridget Gaug's thoughts:

There is something beautiful and simple about an expo where the only goal is to get your bib and be ready to go. Being my first trail race this made it feel more like it was a community compared to a show. It was quick to get what I needed. I could ask questions about the course and race, all without being overwhelmed.

Race Course:
The 18K course went around the perimeter of Mt. Bachelor. This allowed for amazing 360 views. The terrane is HARD. Keep that in mind in regards to training and footwear. It is a very technical race, with lava rocks and very steep hills. Once you catch your breath you can enjoy the spectacular place you are in.

The aid stations were stocked with everything you could need or want (hello candy and bacon at the last one!!!). Plus they had a station where you could wash off any muck you may have collected. The people were positive and helpful and it was a joy going by them.

Post-race: With a giant area for stretching, compression pants, and foam rolling they really worked set you up for your recovery as well. Plus a post-race beer with a line that wasn't 50 people long? WIN! Plus amazing free race photos!

If you are ready for a CHALLENGE and are ready to push your limits, this is your race!
