    So, my name got drawn for the Superior fall 100. Has anyone ran it? Or spent some time on the Superior Hiking Trail? Wondering if sandals will be enough?

    Cool, I looked it up seems like a tough one 21,000' elevation gain and a point to point. 95% single track though, that's awesome!

    Good news OneBite. A couple of the runners over at the Runners World forum have run it, maybe post something there. Course they will all tell you to wear shoes.;)

    I know you posted this a long time ago, but if I rememeber, Sawtooth is a fall race. I have spent much time running on the SHT, and it is very rugged. The rocks are quite sharp and there are a lot of them. It is rather narrow, rocky, and holey single track. There are areas where you climb up steep, sharp rock falls and boulder beaches. I do not run most trail barefoot, so I can't tell you whether you should or not. But it's pretty rugged. This is part of the trail, for example.
