Mystery Mountain Marathon Reviews

3.0 Stars from 1 Runners


By about 2014


Toughest race I have ever attempted. It is exactly as advertised. Slippery from an early morning rain. Very narrow single track for much of the first half. Really not thrilled with the yellow jackets around mile 3. Loved it, hated it, loved it, hated it, loved it. Not sure if I'm tough enough to go back next year.

Race Tips

Hopefully you are better prepared than me. I've done marathons on the road and trail half marathons, but this one caught me by surprise at how tough it was. I thought I went out slowly enough, but I learned a hard lesson.

Run extremely well by the group in charge - G.U.T.S. Great people, very encouraging all the way around. Food looked good at the end, but my stomach just wasn't going to handle it this day.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Get there early to get the lowdown on the course. It still may not help. Words will not do the course justice.
