The race is limited to 500 entries.
"What a terrific event! I especially wanted to compliment you on the course layout. Since trail design has been my livelihood for the past couple of decades, I'm very discriminating about courses. You (or members of your team) did a masterful job of creating a challenging (but not crippling) course that incorporates all the magnificent view points of the property. In my view, you had a terrific balance of manageable climbs, gradual descents and enjoyable, rolling terrain.
The bagpiper in the fog at the Pogue was almost magical."
