Beautiful- but sparse on aid stations (about: 2012)|
J. D. from Stanford, CA (5/7/12)
1 previous marathon
| 1 Muir Woods Trail Marathon
It was an absolutely beautiful run- we ran the reworked course due to a mudslide, but I thought it was incredible- very challenging (Over a mile in elevation gain alone)- there were ladders and bridges, logs to hop over and duck under, and plenty of stairs. I wouldn't recommend it if you have joint issues. But still incredibly beautiful with continuous scenery changes, one moment you're by a river in the redwoods, the next you have a 270 degree view of the bay- incredible.
I would like to see more aid stations though- there were a few stretches that really hurt and there were no aid stations in sight- otherwise very kind and helpful staff, just not enough appropriate food (GU would be nice)
