What’s to LOVE?
Great course. The trails at LBL circle around the upper peninsula around Grand Rivers, Kentucky. They are gentle, rolling hills with no soul-sucking climbs. It’s a really fun course to run.
Excellent management. Durbin Race Management has been putting on races for a lot of years, and it shows. Check-in is fast and professional, aid stations are well staffed and stocked, and the overall atmosphere is great!
Big turnout. Great course plus excellent management equals big turnouts year after year. Ask anyone who runs this race, and they’ll have something good to say about it.
In-race flexibility. Perhaps the cherry on top is the ability to drop down in distance if your race day isn’t going as well as planned. Hey, for most, it’s the first big race of the year, so a little flexibility is nice:-)
