For those virgins of Mt Mist 50k and anyone that may just be wondering how to pace, I wanted to give you some data that you could use. Below are the splits from all the years I have ran Mt Mist. These are just for reference and not meant to be the best way to run the race. The course conditions can effect the overall times. For example, it is fast when it is frozen like in 2006 and 2011. On the other hand, in 2010 it was very muddy. I was also out of shape in 2010 and went out too fast. Hope this helps you. My goal for this year will be 5:00-5:15. Good luck!
