Let the Fun begin!

100 Milers you're at the Kannah Creek aid station mile 50. It's hotter than a volcano belching lava.  There is a crazy lady with cow bells taking care of your water bottles.  Is it a heat-induced hallucinatiion?

All you have to do is get up and climb a little over 4000' in 5.5 miles.

Section 5

For the 100 milers Carson lake to Kannah creek . This section is mostly down hill with a few short steep climbs.  Their was a fire on the lower part of the trail last year the day after the race. This is a section you will want to take extra water . The temps at the top could be in the high 60's and the bottom could be pushing the upper 90's.

This section is rough and it takes a lot longer than you think it should.

First section on the course. the course profile shows it as a little over eleven miles it is closer to 12.1 miles.
for some reason when I download data in to the topo program it shortens the milage.
