Sometimes, the trail is really obvious.
So obvious, in fact, that I had to take a picture. I’ve run a lot of trails – few are this well marked. I actually laughed when I saw the three blue markers, 20 feet apart.
Visually double-checking the path is crucial.
So is a double-check of a pre-race checklist. Especially for a race that’s 20 miles away from the nearest town and is only accessed by one road. (There’s a reason we’re camping at the starting line.)
This weekend promises to be an adventure. Stay tuned for photos, videos etc.
In the mean time, help me out. What should I bring? Runners – and non-runners – what’s worked for you and what you would want to bring?
