Beautiful Course (about: 2013)|

This course was beautiful but probably the most difficult course I have run (>30 marathons). The course is a single track hiking trails that is an out and back (the out part is primarily uphill and the back is primarily downhill). It was well organized and the only suggestion I could make would be to have an extra stop between the 5.4 mile and 10 mile stops (possibly a porta-potty at the 10 mile?). If you run this, be sure to bring a container or camel back with fluids. The pre-race and post-race was good...lots of drinks for recovery, etc.
Running under the canopy of the forest was just fantastic...I would definitely do one of these again!
