From my post on the "Reach the Beach relay" back in September, I did not mention the "hills" of the run. Some were simply tremendous with 700 foot climbs and then 500 foot drops (over several miles). One way to simulate the runs of the RTB Relay is to simply run down 302 from Cannon (which can be done near our condo as we are 45 minutes from Cannon) or one can simply run this path! Just be careful as steep rises and falls can lead to knee issues. In other words, I wouldn't do this path every day but if you have a hill run coming, this might be helpful.
Here are the metrics of the run
Total Distance: 2.3 Miles
Distance from Condo: 1/2 mile down 302
Total Elevation High/Low: 975ft / 595 ft
Easiest Run: Climb Attitash Mt Road side as it is really steep (up almost 400 ft) but once at the top, you are all downhill for almost 1 mile to the fields of Attitash. I usually park in the Attitash parking lot located at the bottom of Attitash Mt Road.
Hardest Run: Start from the bottom of Cow Hill Road as you will have a mile uphill climb going up 400 ft and then a very steep drop which can be a killer on the knees (so take care). I try to park in the hotel located at the bottom of Cow Hill but beware as it is private property.
