NJ Ultra Fest

Lisa
Hey there,
I'm new to trail running, but I have been running marathons, etc for about 4 years now,and have been slowly making the transition to longer distances and trails. I was wondering if anyone has done the NJ Ultra Fest 50K on the current course and if anyone has any insight? Is this course extremely difficult or just challenging enough for a newbie trail/ultra runner?   Appreciate any insight/ tips or help. Thanks!
Lisa

No one has done the new course as this is the first year.  Unfortunately, it is on private property so it looks like there will be no opportunity for practice runs.  The course is supposed to be fairly non-technical, mostly fire roads, with very little elevation gain so it is great for a new runner.  If you go to the NJTrailSeries.com site they have some pics posted of the course as well as a map and elevation guide.  They are a good group and are generous with aid and cut-offs so you should be fine.
