This is a trail race through beautiful Durham Forest. See my revised map from the race site with some notes...
The good news
: I know the forest very well... I've biked hours and hours in there.
The bad news

: I know the forest very well... and I know what we're in for! They've included a lot of single track, which is pretty hilly stuff... especially in the first 1/3 or so of the race. I mean really, could they not have skipped "Wall of Pain"? Or "Lunatic Way"??? It's got Lunatic in the friggin' name! This is going to be a toughie. And they've increased the distance from 12km to almost 15km, so this will be a pretty big challenge for me with my current mileage.
: finish with a smile on my face. Keep well within myself for the first 1/2, and hopefully have something left in the second 1/2. Get some trail racing under my belt before the Moraine Relay. And smile!
Go kill it dude. Even with low recent mileage, a strong 15K will be there race day based on tons of experience.
Thanks Mr Bellybuster! :) I've been feeling stronger on the bike and a few good runs, so it might be coming around in time to do something decent on Saturday!
