About 165 runners lined up for the start of the Paris Mountain 11k trail race this morning.  Race time temperature was about 35 degrees.  Just less than the first half mile is on pavement, then it’s on to the trails.

The trails are all single-track, but passing is manageable at the right spot.  The roots and rocks are plentiful in this race so every step requires care.  I didn’t even try to look at my Garmin until we were into the last mile of the race, worried that I’d wipe out.  The first two miles are relatively easy on rolling terrain.  The third mile turns into a hike because it is a virtually “un-runnable” uphill stretch of rocky trails (if you’ve ever hiked the trail to the top of Mt.Pisgah, that’s what this reminded me of).   My time on mile three was 15:45 (I averaged 9 minutes for the first two mile).  Once you’re up at the top for mile four, it’s a nice rolling stretch with a great view for about a minute.  Then it’s a technical downhill full of more gnarly roots and rocks until the seventh and final mile which is moderately rolling.

This race is more mentally challenging than physically challenging because of the continued focus on footing and the inability (for someone like me) to really run fast.  Unlike the DuPont Forest 12k, most people cannot run the entire course of the Paris Mountain 11k because of the steep, rocky uphill and the steep, gnarly downhill.

Great post-race food – hot off the griddle pancakes and little cartons of chocolate milk!

My total time was 1:12:45.  My best mile was the last one (8:30 pace) and my slowest was mile three (15:45).  Here are the complete results …

  1. Dennis… It was great to finally meet you face to face.. I agree with you 100% about that run… That was a total accident waiting to happen to any runner that lost focus and concentration on footing… Those trails are quite dangerous under any circumstances… but being very wet/or damp… made the roots, clay and especially the rocks and boulders extremely slippery. The leaves are really falling now and covering not only the paths in most places…but the potholes, roots, rocks, stumps,etc…. and every stride and foot planting and push-offs, had to be measured and pre-screened visually in an effort to avoid falling and heaven only knows what other injuries were just a mis-step away. I saw at least 10 falls around me and no telling how many trips, stumbles and recoveries…. For me…finishing time, place and age division awards became totally irrelevant and my goal quickly….(just after my own early slip and recovery) …became to finish the course uninjured and able to finish off my year’s remaining racing schedule and not sitting at home injured and in a MAJOR DEPRESSION! lol So Im very pleased with my efforts and outcome at this morning’s Paris Mountain Extreme 11k Trail Challenge.. And now Im ready to be a 1:35 Pacer at next Saturday’s SC Governor’s Cup Half Marathon in Columbia… ;)

    • Great to finally meet you too! And on a race like this I’ll gladly give up a couple of minutes so I can run again tomorrow and not three months from now because of a fast-paced downhill fall on the rocks!
