32km 3 Passes and 5500 ft of Ascent
I had a truly great day, in a truly great place and was pleased to be so close to the front. I do think that several of the people must have taken the unnecessary trail detour and lost a lot of time to those of us who opted against it. I also think that I spent enough time studying the maps and had a clear idea of what to expect. I'm not sure many of the others were used to navigating on the run. I never saw any of the people who took the wrong turn near the top of the second pass again, they had not made the finish when we left with only 30 minutes to go to the cut off.
For those that like numbers and maps you can find the details here
