In the morning at the starting area
There is the finish line.
The race director giving us a few last words of wisdom
The first mile as on pavements, but then we got into single track
Working up one of the many smaller uphills.
There was a bit of double track in the first several miles.
Still all smiles.
Runners making their way uphill
The first bunch of miles had many great views.
Really nice single track
It was already getting hot out.
A section of the course drops into a canyon and runs along the bottom.
The stream was totally dry this year.
The course followed trail 89. There were lots of trail markers
More typlical trail sections. This is along the bottom of the canyon.
View across canyon
Running along the canyon edge with good views.
Just follow the 89 signs
This is my last photo during the race. I guess that I stopped taking photos about 30 miles into the race.
My finisher's award. I finished in 7th place overall with a time of 26:30 and won my age group!
