Hill of Truth: the 12hrs of Haw Ridge.
I’m not an XC racer by any stretch of the imagination, but after 3 years of doing this race I finally get why people love doing it. On one hand it’s not serious, but once you get out on the trail you pick up the pace. Don’t know if it’s knowing you got other teammates relying on you, but something about it causes you to push. Maybe it’s the mix of day and night laps. Maybe it’s the fellowship almost the competitors, whatever it is I look forward to next year.
