A bunch of us did the new route this morning at 7am. In fact, about 100 people seemed to have the same idea. There are a few gradual climb hills…but all in the route is such that one can really make time. Much of it is flat or very mild grade.
If we don’t get too much rain between now and race day, there won’t be any issues w/that either. Currently the route has zero water impediments anywhere.
