I tested the Osprey Talon 22 pack (had it filled with about 10 pounds) and found it to be fantastic. I also used the Drymax Cold Weather Running Socks, and even though my feed were soaking wet by the end of the run, not a single blister to talk about.
Below is a collection of images taken from the trails, as well as a map of the course.

Most of the trails looked like this.
