Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with my experience with the PV50K! Great communication leading up to the event, fully stocked aid stations with fantastic volunteers, and you can't beat the swag!! The course was mostly flat with some challenging hills to keep it interesting.
This was my first ultra and I couldn't have been more pleased with the way it was ran! Course was awesome with such a variety of terrain with rocky technical, smoot single track, 15% climbs, and a awesome deep water crossing.
I have run the Patapsco Valley 50K four years now. The gang at White Oak Running Company put on a great race. To me it defines what a great ultra should be: reasonably priced, laid back, well supported with great aid stations, delicious finish line food, and minimal b.s.
Ran the 50k and found the course to be challenging and enjoyable. Everyone involved with the race was friendly and professional. Great aid stations and volunteers. Very generous giveaways in the race bag and mug at the end. All in all, I enjoyed the whole race.
