Stairway to Heaven 15k

This morning, Sean and I ventured down to Fortuna Mountain to run the Stairway to Heaven 15k, which is part of the Dirt Devil Racing four-part series.  It turned out to be a VERY tough course, as you will be able to tell from the pictures below.  The trails were fairly technical in certain parts and the hills were unbelievably tough.  

A picture of Fortuna Mountain - though we obviously didn't run all of it, this gives you an idea of the type of terrain we were facing!

This was the "Stairway to Heaven" part - a very steep set of railroad ties that had been made into steps to get up the mountain!

Official results have not been posted yet and neither have the actual race photos, so I'll post those later.  But according to our GPS times, Sean finished in 1:59:33 and I finished in 1:59:55.
