Wow, we were blessed with good weather in that the rain and snow held off for the entire race. Temps were in the mid to low 30's which made for a cold start but comfortable for the run.
Steve, Rob, Jenny, Jamal, Karen, and I all carpooled up to the race in the morning. We arrived at 6:30 AM which was an hour before the start but parking was at a premium and we parked right next to the Aid station.
Lord Hill is a three loop race with about 2,100 feet elevation gain each loop. It's a challenging course with some muddy trails and steep climbs in places.
Steve and Jamal busted out some fine performances with Jamal placing 3rd place overall (I can't remember his time) and Steve running a 5:24:00. I think Steve was trying to catch Rob (Rattler) but got fooled because Rob jumped off into the bushes for a bathroom stop and Steve ran by him. I managed to stumble about in the woods and come in at 6 hours even. This was Jenny's third 50K and the toughest course to date for her.
