We thought that running through bear country would be nerve wracking.  We were trained on what to do if we encounter black bears, grizzly bears, or cougars and hoped we wouldn't have to test this training.  During my leg, however, I was so distracted by the steep hills and spectacular scenery, that I didn't think about what might lurk behind the tall grass, within the dense forest, or near the rocks just around the corner.

Between the challenges of the course and the impressive organization, I couldn't more highly recommend Sinister 7.  We stayed with a local family; our interaction with them really enhanced the experience.

.... and by the way, we won the women's division!
