Race Location: Pawtuckaway State Park
Race Date: October 13, 2018
Race Managed/Timed By: Acidotic Racing
Organization of Bib Pick Up: Bib pick up was day off race with plenty of time before start of race.
Organization of Race: The organization was great; plenty of people issuing out bibs. Timing was done through chips. Very well organized.
Course Description: The morning was cold and wet it had been raining on and off throughout the night. The leaves were many hues of reds, yellows and oranges. The course slippery, rooted and bridges covered with a hue of green. We were told to slow down when crossing the bridges because the green was moss and with the rain it was super slippery. The trails were winding single track that opened up to dirt roads and you gained elevation as you climbed up devils staircase to North Mountain and South Mountain. The end of the race takes you through windy trails that make you feel like you are going in circles then you hit the road for the last stretch home.
Spectators/Energy: The volunteers are awesome and there were 3 water stops with heed, candy, water and gels.
Swag: The satisfaction of finishing.
After Party: BBQ and beer
Other Thoughts/Comments:: Doing it again next year.
