I have a problem with altitude higher than a few thousand feet. I don't think I could do this without oxygen.

Yep, there's one big 2-mile long uphill to Hurricane Point, then a mile or so downhill. That's where the halfway point is, and from there to the finish it's mostly rolling hills.

I ran with someone who power-walked the first half to enjoy the views (and take photos), then she ran the second half and finished under the 6 hour cutoff. So that's an option :-)

For those wanting to run but are not interested in the RW markup package, decide soon. The marathon is 85% full, last I heard earlier this week.

I'm located in Pacific Daylight Time.

Sharon - because of "Runners World Challenge" they create a VIP package not necessary. I ran Toronto GoodLife marathon (1/2) here this month and cost me $65. they had a "Runners World Challenge " advertised in magazine & Online with special VIP perks cost few hundred dollars for the same race

Did it, finished it. Toughest event I've ever done---even tougher than the Way To Cool 50K in the Sierra Nevadas. It IS beautiful...but train hills---and lots of them!

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. ~Colossians 3:23-24

I've run it once, and DNF'd once (knee injury). It's a beautiful course.

You can register direct at bsim.org and it's cheaper than the $299 cost of the RW version. I can barely justify the race fee without the extra $$ the RW version is charging for things like a tent at the starting area, a run with RW editors, etc.

I'm located in Pacific Daylight Time.
