Below is the course around Sedona for the 50K endurance race, and the elevation gain was provided by the race director. This was by far the toughest, yet most scenic trail race I've ever done. Fortunately, I had a friend from Flagstaff running the race that knew the entire route, otherwise I would have been incredibly lost. We exchanged the lead with several other runners as the day went on, somehow he and I managed to come out on top finishing the race together in a true team effort with a tie for first. Wish I could have enjoyed the scenery, except I was a little more concerned with my foot placement on the trails. The weather was perfect, the race was well organized, everything seemed to go as smooth as possible, and everyone was in good spirits despite the challenges the race provided.
