Blood, Sweat & Beers Trail Race
28 March 2020
The marathon course begins by running the 5K course, up the mildly-technical trail Girl Scout to the Caldera Lot (and aid station), and then down East Leg, a fun, moderately-technical trail. Continue around to Upper Lake View, down Snakeback, and around Lower Lake View before the long climb up the River Mountain Hiking Trail switchbacks. Once at the top, run along Skyline, one of the most technical trails in Bootleg Canyon, until coming to the Caldera Lot once again.
Continue out and run the Outer Caldera Loop, ending up at the Caldera Lot again before continuing through the Inner Caldera Loop and hitting the Caldera Lot one final time. From there, cruise down West Leg, up and over the saddle conenctor trail onto Mother, a fun winding trail that runs along the side of a steep dropoff, and down onto P.O.W to the Monument Aid Station.
Continue with a slow grinder up P.O.W. and Par None before crossing over and running Upper Lake View, Snakeback, Lower Lake View, and the River Mountain Hiking Trail switchbacks again, this time returning via Boy Scout through the Caldera Lot, down West Leg, across the saddle again, to Mother and down Mother's switchbacks to the finish line.
