Mines of Spain Trail Half Marathon

 The Mines of Spain Trail Half Marathon was a new race put on by some local Dubuque Iowa area trail runners and they did it right. My friends and I had for the most part had never run these trails and they did not disappoint.  This race was spot on with breathtaking scenery, great trails, difficult terrain and a great pre and post race vibe. The course had hills,bridges,marsh,prairie, more hills,rocks, stairs, logs, more hills..well you get the idea.  Here is a link to the Garmin Connect data on the race.

I can't say enough how much I enjoyed this race. One of my best ever and a new favorite. Instead of a long blow by blow blogpost I will let my pictures (of course I stopped to take pictures) do the talking. Enjoy, I will definitely be back next year.
