Race Name: Blacksmith Fork Freedom Run 15k
Date: July 4th, 2014
Race Difficulty: Intermediate
Race Description: This run starts ½ way up Blacksmith Fork Canyon in Cache Valley. It is the most picturesque race/run I have run. Of the 9.3 miles course, about 8 ½ miles are downhill, so the race is really fast. The pitch is not too steep, so you are not rocking your legs.
