I discovered the stunning course in a last-ditch effort to get the “right” course. With a five-star hotel resort as an athlete’s village and the course on the Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, we nailed it – submitted bid – and won as we found out yesterday:
I ran that course with Olympians, collegiate and competitive athletes over and over again, getting it right. Hip hardly bothered me at all on the fringe area, sandtraps, big hills and big downhill sections. Off-road rules for the hip!!!
So we will have club and masters championships. See you hiprunners next year! Maybe have a hip category.
