What’s to LOVE?
Kentucky’s longest trail. The 50-miler starts in Morehead and runs to the northern terminus of Sheltowee Trace - a 300+ mile trail traversing Daniel Boone National Forest into Tennessee. It would be great to see a race series that covers the entire distance (hint, hint).
Good running. This section of the Trace isn’t overly challenging with long stretches of good running. Of course, there are a few climbs along the way - the opening climb comes to mind:-)
Next Opportunity Events. I’ve come to really enjoy this company’s races, as they each have some form of challenge that keeps you on your toes. I recall being undertrained last year and feeling like ice cold death on the final descent.
