You can expect to run over lava and pumice fields, cross rivers, run through the blast zone, and encounter dense forests. Oh, and did we mention that there's around 7,400 feet of elevation gain in this once? That's right. Time to start training now.
The Volcanic 50 course is single track the whole way and follows a clockwise loop around the mountain. There are numerous long climbs and descents throught the race so study that course map and elevation profile so that you know what to expect going into the day.
