Has anyone run the American River 50 before? (Read 601 times)

    That's the weird thing... several people told me about the easy peasy trail.  And honestly, only a stretch (10-15 miles?) was what I'd call technical.  The rest WAS easy peasy compared to what these folks normally run.  But I wish they'd have called this part out :-).

     

    Lots of people were walking The Hill.  I ran the whole damn thing... though not much faster than walking.  That said, I probably passed 20ish people on The Hill.  Cool.

       Why the hell would you do such a thing?
