As with most ultras, the Leona Divide Ultra Marathon is a laid back event with good vibes.
You arrive in the dark and huddle with your fellow competitors to keep warm until the race starts. In my opinion, the plushest feature about this ultra is the double bag drop. The first bag drop is 8.8 miles in, so if you’re a little bitch like me you can wear long sleeves to start and drop your outer layer 8.8 miles in. At the second bag drop this year, there was the supreme bonus of Carlos dressed as the Incredible Hulk.
