Your Elevation Chart

This is a (mostly) flat and fast course with some California inclines/declines! Soon after you cross the starting line, you’ll go down a steep but very short hill (maybe 50 yards). There are 2 SHORT steep hills on the course that you’ll run or walk up. If you choose to walk them, it’ll take you about 30 seconds! 🙂
