Excellent trail course & well organized! (about: 2001)|
A Runner from Champaign, IL (6/18/01)
This was one of the coolest marathons I've run. Truly spectacular trail course, great scenery, and good support. Not bad for a race run in 'Hell, MI.' I'd recommend the event to anyone willing to run a tough trail course. The 2001 race had almost perfect conditions so the trail was in good shape--I imagine it could get ugly if there was more rain or colder/hotter temps. Hey, that's what trail running is all about! Only real 'spectators' are those at the aid stations and start/finish line--but they were enthusiastic.
