Pace is a bit off. The actual run portion of this race was less than 4 miles. I believe the 4 mile designation accounts partly for our run from the water, up the beach, and into T1. I think the actual run segment was more like 3.5 miles. I'd like to know exactly if anyone has this info.
Paved trail for the two miles out, then up a nice flight of stairs onto the top of Ft. DeSoto, down the other set of stairs. Rest of run course was in moderately packed sand.
