The course starts with a short but noticeable uphill climb on Veto Road. Then, the next 1.5 miles or so are seriously downhill. I should have taken more advantage of that than I did. It flattens for a short time around mile 3, then it turns to the trail and the next 3 miles are steady uphill. There is no flat or downhill portion of the last 3 miles. It's not steep at all, but it's uphill.
I finished in 44:24 and took second in my age group behind Scott Michael who beat me by about a minute. I didn't get all the splits, but I'll list what I have.
- 14:22 (for miles 2 and 3)
- 7:26 (mile 4)
- 6:59 (mile 5)
- 8:40 for the last 1.2 miles
Of course, Tyrone Harris was the overall winner. I'll post a link to the results as soon as I have a link.
