After looking at my dads road half marathon times versus his trail half marathon times, I have realized that breaking 2 hours won't happen! My dad can run a 1:35 road half, but his last trail half time was 1:59.
Of course my main goal is to finish and finish injury free, but I can't go into a race without a finish time goal. Right now I am torn between 2:10 and 2:15. The last half I ran with my dad, I only finished 10 minutes after him. But he also has trail experience and I do not. all my races have been road races. We plan to run a few trainign runs on the trail that the race is being held on, but I doubt that will get me to my dads trail status.
I know I have some time to figure this out, but I am a planner when it comes to running.
Anyway, here is the trail race we are running.
Here is the course map & elevation.
