13.1 miles of gorgeous countryside and some hills for good measure. The rain held off and it was great running weather!

Vacation Races, you have spoiled me!

So far, of all the races I've ran, VR have been the best supported races with the coolest finish. This was a tough and rewarding course. I will do it again.
