I have to say that I think elevation makes a huge difference in the outcome of a race. If you are running a race with hills, you MUST train for this or you will endure some serious pain.

The elevation at the half marathon I ran last year was almost none. It was a fairly flat course with a few mild inclines.

The half marathon I ran this year was a whole different story:

Talk about hills. Rolling hills. Crazy hills one right after another. Hills that make your calf muscles scream. Hills that make you feel alive. God Bless the hills.

My advice... check out the elevation before you register for a race and train for the hills if you need to.
