23,000 feet of elevation change. 11,000 feet of gain in the first 26 miles. Logging hundreds of miles won't prepare you for this race. You have to step up your vertical game.
If you think you can handle one of the world's hardest mountain trail races, come out for the Quest for the Crest. Both the 10K and 50K races happen in Burnsville, North Carolina every year at the end of May.
