Average Rating:  
Recent Review: Although the course is billed as a fast downhill course, there are a few steep hills early in the race and some real time-killing hills between miles 11 and 13, and a significant uphill between miles 22 and 23. I understand that for 2011 the Biosphere portion of the course had been changed. The course is extremely boring between miles 14 and 20 as you run along the shoulder of the highway. Between miles 20 and 24 the course has a very slight downhill gradient.
