1st trip
First time participating in a running event and it happens to be a trail race hosted by Aravaipa Running.
First time on this trail too. ( was a nervous wreck all week :o )

Parking lot on Ramada 8 was full by the time we got there (less than an before race start).
On the course map it says the first part is Baseline Spur. It was a huge hill! (per Strava it was 0.4 mile 9.3% 200 ft) :scared: It was rocky but certainly not slippery. The section of the trail was wide enough for most runners. After that it switched to single track (which was rocky) then back again to wider trail. I managed to take a couple of pictures as the skies cleared midway through the run. Nice downhill section by mile 3, again rocky but not slick.

It was super windy that morning, no rain though. The trails were not muddy at all, I was expecting a muddy run due to rain the night before. Endomondo says it was 82% humidity with 10mph winds temps in the high 40s to low 50s.
