Now we get to the "Real Fun" - Race 4 of the Southeastern Trail Series
Climb to the top of Double Oak Mountain then down to the depths of Peavine Gorge! You might even want to cool off under the falls before climbing back to the top of the Mountain.
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's tough. The trick to deal with the heat is Simple. Drink a lot of water and use Tailwind. If you don't use Tailwind you will have to take electrolyte caps or consume electrolyte sport drinks if you want to finish this one. We even add an extra aid station up near Peavine Falls.
