What’s cool: This is a point-to-point course. That in itself is cool. But it’s also got an epic downhill over the last few miles. The year I ran this (as Kelly Johnson, in 2010 … in case you want to verify my story!) my slowest mile was somewhere around 16:00 and my fastest was a sub-7 pace.
Carpooling is recommended, but if you’re flying solo, there will be shuttles leaving from the finish area (Backwoods Brewing, located at 1162 B Wind River Road in Carson, Wash.) at 7:30. The race then starts from the Skamania County Fairgrounds at 8a.
