The Skyline Mountain Marathon is a true hidden gem in the trail running world. It has views, it has ridgline running, and it has ice! With elevation gain of around 5K ft, your legs are sure to be screaming. With over 90% on rough single track trail, it will diffidently challenge you. For those of you looking for something not quite as punishing, there is a Half Marathon or 30K option. And for those of you looking to really push yourself, the 55K is for you, with almost 7K ft in climbing. Both the marathon and 55K are great training runs for the fall 100 milers.
