Performance: Below average
This course was not 13.1 dead on. Was told it was about 1/2 mile longer. These trail runs are never 100% accurate.
Course: Very narrow trail in some areas. Very muddy!!! Had to walk down some hills to avoid slipping. Some of the hills were quite steep and I had to walk up one of them and half of another.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Not enough
