Wow! Simply Put... Wow! The cave tour was absolutely amazing, race organization was just incredibly professional as expected, and then the course was both fun and challenging:) Running in the cave was just something I never thought I'd ever get to do and the views were well worth the price of entering the race. Chip timing began at the lower level of the cave and then we were able to run through the narrow and low pathways over to the colossal opening which afforded us an amazing view of a "living" cave:) Then we had the challenging of briskly walking up to the elevated exit which helped to warm-up those running muscles just before exiting to a shocking change in temperature-from 72deg over to 33deg but that was just fine as we were already plenty warmed up. The course then went via pavement, asphalt, golf cart paths, hill country caliche that included hills along with well-covered cattle guards. The views of the hill country were absolutely spectacular and then the race culminated back over to the finish line where we were greeted and cheered upon by a mass of race organizers and volunteers:) Results were immediate as all one needed to do was type in the bib number and you knew right away how you'd done:) And you could do this as often as you wanted in order to check how your age-level rank had fluctuated as more and more runners crossed the finish line:) I will definitely recommend this race to family and friends:) Thank you so much for making this unique experience one that I will talk about with my running friends and family:) Redemption Race Productions absolutely delivered everything they promised! My hat goes off to them :)
