I was able to get a hold of Superman (aka Jason’s Garmin data) again and he was kind enough to provide a view-from-the-sky of the recent The Falls trail run (2010 results summary) course just west of Austin, Texas.
The video highlights the entire 30 km loop along with a short section of bonus miles as Jason accidentally added little bit extra between mile 4 and 5. You will see his short out-and-back.
For 60 km runners, you get to enjoy this course – twice.
You won’t see any rocks from this altitude but it should provide a little idea of some of the grade changes and the general flow of the course.
(If you can’t see the video, click here.)
Also, below is the course profile if you want to follow along. You will notice that the stretch from mile 2-6 only gains about 250 feet. As the video highlights, the grade is minimal but continues for four miles. The profile belows makes it appear more of a monster than what it really is.
Total elevation gain/descent for the 30 km loop: ~1550 feet.
A special thanks to Jason for sharing his Garmin data from a solid evening on the trails.
Be active – Feel the buzz!
