Washington's Toughest 50K: Grey Rock

I can see why the race is named "Grey Rock"...picture courtesy http://www.ahtanumvalleymuseum.org/greyrock.htm

I'm pretty excited about this course.  I have never run near Yakima.  The race is 30 miles west of Yakima at Tree Phones Campground.  The course follows Grey Rock Trail.  With 6,000 feet elevation gain and decline and highly technical trails, the race may be Washington's toughest 50K.  We'll see... I am not sure it will be more difficult than Orcas Island's 50K that has 7,000 feet elevation gain and decline.  It might depend on just "how" technical  the trail is.  I'll get back to you with a race report next week!
