Now we get to the "Real Fun"
Things get a little harder with race 4 of the Southeastern Trail Series, Hotter ' N Hell. We increase the distance, but not too much, only to 9 and 18 miles. We throw in a few more climbs, but not too many. And we mix in a new factor, HEAT! This one makes it tough. The key factor here in drink a lot of water and use Tailwind. If you don't use Tailwind you will have to take electrolytes to finish this one. We even add an extra aid station up near Peavine Falls. Please remember OMSP charges $5 per person to enter the park. Try to have the correct change, it makes things easier. "You are ready for this. You can do it."
