"The 50K was an ideal Championship course because while it offers suitable challenge to runners of all abilities, it is very “runable” so that top competitors can push themselves over the entire route. The scenery is superb and the field quickly loses sight of the fact that the race begins and ends in town because most of it feels remote, except for the views overlooking Durango." Adam Chase , Running Times Magazine, Trail Editor.
