|Average Ratings as of 09/19/2014: Course: Overall|
|Pros: On trails out of the sun, mostly.|
|Cons: Some inclines like last 3/8 mi.|
|Comments: This is the true test of your running. Want to improve, try these. I can't wait for tonight.|
|Pros: You won't find a less expensive race than this! Also, it's ultimately a downhill course - you finish at a lower elevation than you start.|
|Cons: There is a LOT of congestion at first few turns at the start of the race. Also, the finish (probably last 1/3 mile) is all uphill to the finish line.|
|Comments: Lots of variety in the terrain - some flat, some rolling hills, some short but very steep hills, and some longer hills. Also, although it is only scored individually and not as a team race, you'll see lots of high school teams here, so it can be very competitive.|
