      Great race, very hot and I went the wrong direction at the end, adding 30 minutes to my time, lol, would def do again.

      For the record, both the June and October versions of this race had good weather last year.

    The race ate me up and spit me out. But I still had a great time, and this trail, the Skyline to Sea is still one of my favorites. It's where I saw my first mountain lion years ago! And Waddell Beach is a great beach. And this trail is totally fun. But it was just too hot for my wimpy little scull - just got in 16 miles ;)

    Just signed up! I also e-mailed Coastal Trails to see about the Tick situation - they said not to worry about ticks. (Last time I was on that trail I got bit by a tick)

      Eleanore I have one of those little things and have had the (ew) occasion to use it a few times - couple times on me and once on a friend. But sure beats just trying to pull it out with your fingers and hoping for the best...

      But enough tick talk (ha ha) you guys are going to have a blast :-)

    Sprained my foot last night playing my first soccer (and last) soccer game of the season. Pretty bummed. No soccer and no running for a while. Emailed Coastral Trails to see what they can do. If they allow it would anyone be interested in buying my entry?

    • Yuch

      Aw, that sucks! Hope you feel better soon!

      Megan, wish you could run this race! I've got a friend interested in your entry.

    BRC - coastal trails has given me the option of transferring to another runner if I arrange it by 5pm Thursday. Let me know if anyone wants to run the 50k!

  • Drew

    tempted, but right now the right ankle says no....but that ride to the start would make this thing really sweet.

    • Ania F.

      Drew, if you register your ride is reserved :-)

      May 10, 2014

    • Drew

      Oops, forgot that this is a regatta weekend for me.
