What’s to LOVE?
Great running. Caesar Creek’s trails are on rolling hills that make for great running. While there’s plenty of elevation change on the course, it’s very run-able with the biggest climb at around 80 ft.
Heat training. There are few things that’ll set you up for success in the Fall like running in the Summer heat. Adding a scorcher will yield excellent results down the road - just be sure to take care of your hydration, electrolytes, and nutrition while you’re out there.
Low cost. Relative to other ultras, this race is cheap. At $50, it’s a terrific deal to get out on a marked course with stocked aid stations and some fellow nutters running in the muggy July heat.
