Really nice race as I chose this as my first full after 25+ halfs. Great shirt choices and plenty of aid stations. Weather was great and people were wonderful. Highly recommend this race whether it is your first full or your are trying to qualify for Boston.
It is a LONG downhill do hill training is recommended. Try to make sure that you don't have to go down stairs for a few days afterwards.
If you have trouble with riding a bus on mountain roads, have someone ride up early while you drive up the mountain and then your passenger can take your vehicle down for you.

Beware, organizers decided to postpone 2015 race less than 5 days before original date with unacceptable reasons. Should have warn racers much before of the circumstances as soon as they came up, not a few days before the race. No refund provided. Extremely high cost for international runners. Will not run during rescheduled date and never in the future.
