This is one of my favorite trail runs without a doubt. It has a substantial climb, some super fun, technical, classic NW trails and a screaming descent. Throw in good company in the form of Bryan Estes and it's hard to go wrong.
I was a little slow on the climb due to fitness and on the descent due to my hip but I did have a great time. And on the bright side, my hip is not hurting so much as it's just really inconvenient.
