UTA as long slow distance with Ali, Em and Caitlin. First half stopping and waiting for the girls to catch up and then second half from the lowest point to the finish without stopping with Ali. Not an inspiring start to the race which had me thinking it wasn't a real trail race. But then the views from the section along the bottom of the valleys was very scenic looking up at the sandstone cliffs, the climb was a solid burn and the trail turned single track for the last 6-7km and the course redeemed itself. Knee sore to start but not too bad by the end.
