Here at aid station #6 we are about 22 miles into the race. We have had about half the runners come through and you can tell the miles are wearing. Attitudes are still positive and the runners are always happy to see the aid station, but looming ahead is the final climb of Terrapin Mountain. Rewarding views of the surrounding Blue Ridge are tempered by the agony of the last push.
Then it's all downhill and the reward of finishing the Terrapin 50k, a challenge not for the light hearted.
Speedgoat Mountain Races will be July 28,29, 2017
