A perfect race for a strong individual runner. (about: 2011)|
L. W. from Fort Worth, TX (3/20/11)
6-10 previous marathons
| 1 Grasslands Trail Run Marathon
This race is quite an adventure. It starts out at the first crack of light in the early morning. There is maybe 80 people in the race, so after a few miles people group of into little packs. A few miles after that, racers are much more spread out and most are running individually. There are virtually no spectators, and only 4 strategically placed water stops. The course is a bit challenging, but it goes by fast. The soft dirt is easy on the feet and knees, and many parts of the trail are shaded by trees. Race organization is fine too. At the end of the race, finishers receive a small medal and free BBQ sandwich. Overall, it was a great experience and I would be glad to run this race anytime it's not raining.
