A nightmarish course of rocks and roots with a bit of elevation thrown in. The race uses the Skyline Trail for a lovely 8 mile loop. There is a water drop at the half way point. This race starts at sunrise and ends at sundown. You have probably never run anything like it, unless you have. Please bring something delicious for the aid station. Oh, and it is in December in New England. It will be cold. You will probably not want to get out of bed to come to it, so only sign up if you really, really want to run. See you at the starting line!
