Different and challenging. Perfect tune up for Fall marathons. It has been used as a Boston Marathon last long run. It will test your fitness. First 3.6 totally uphill and you'll hate me. Next 7.5 downhill and you'll love me. One flattish mile to distract you and the last 10K rolling hills.
Accurate. Low key, fun. Very few 30Ks in the country and this one is so available and attainable.
Finishers medal and that feeling of Heck, yeah!
