What’s to LOVE?
Challenging. This is a tough race requiring smart running. Hell, the opening ascent can ruin your race if you’re not careful. When finished, you’ll know you did something really tough - you’ll feel it.
Plenty of time. All races start at 8 a.m. on Saturday and finish 40 hours later. This gives runners the ability to test their endurance - reaching for a PR distance that otherwise might have been out of reach.
GREAT aid stations. Of all the trail races I’ve done, the aid stations at Cloudsplitter in 2018 were the best! At the 50K turnaround, having a hot egg and spinach wrap was a Godsend.
Norton’s embrace. The town of Norton has truly embraced this race since it moved here in 2017 and moving the start/finish last year was a smart move. In 2019, I’m looking forward to enjoying post-finish libations from a new brewery located at the start/finish:-)
