This is a trail race for those who are interested in a real challenge. The organizers claim about 7,000' of vertical climb over 26.2 miles and that was probably right. Winding through the Hoosier National Forest, it's all single track, rocky trail except for traversing two dams and a short patch of asphalt at the end of each 13.1 mile loop.
The marathon field was small in 2012, only 34 finishers, so expect to have some time to yourself on the trail.
I enjoyed this race a lot. If you want to run trails, this is a good chance to do so.
