A serious, hardy test for trail runners of any level, The North Face® Endurance Challenge in Bear Mountain, NY takes place on the western shores of the Hudson River and through the craggy foothills of the Catskill Mountains. Runners can expect technical terrain and rocky footing that cuts to the chase, with some trails heading steeply uphill rather than zig-zagging at a gentler grade. Descents end in wooded hollows before the next rapid climb ending with a breathtaking view. Make no mistake: this will be a tough test of off-road endurance.

Wow -- what a fun race. Tons of single-track, rocks, steep climbs, and even some water crossings. This was my first North Face Challenge race, so I really didn't know what to expect.. it was more difficult than I was anticipating, but but definitely more fun as well.

The trail is well marked and the aid stations had plenty of water of support. Volunteers were excellent as well. Overall a great race and can't wait for my next!
