Who's in? Done this before? Looking for feedback on the 50k option for a first ultra. Thanks!

I've never run more than a marathon, but I think 2013 is my year to explor ultras! This is local, right? I'm tentatively in!

I think it'd be an ideal first 50K. I ran their marathon 2 yrs ago (along the same course), and plan to do the 50k in june. the course has several short/steep climbs to mix up the otherwise rolling-to-flat terrain along the potomac heritage. it's not very technical in terms of rocks/roots, so it's very run-able. it'd be easy to scope out in advance since it's so close.

the aid stations are well-spaced & have everything you'd ever need and then some. I wish it were a bit earlier in the season, but the trees keep you well-shaded. it's an out/back course for everyone and fun to pass some of the elites blasting their way back from the 50-miler turn around. the NF schwag is a nice bonus!

Do it!

Send 'em easily, Jessica O.

50km is 29,000 too many meters for me, you guys are outta your minds.
