Amy was a wonderful mother, friend, Christian and accomplished Ultra runner. She was a 50 Mile Beast, a two time Sehgahunda finisher to name just a few of her many athletic accomplishments. She was about the best darn long running partner anyone could ask for. We lost her to a medical emergency on 3/27/2018. Amy was a mom of three and two of her children are teenagers still living at home. We want to run in honor of Amy and help raise some funds to support her daughters’ education.
The race is a six hour event on a 1.1 mile out and back in Durand Eastman Park on Lake Ontario (each loop totaling 2.2 miles). The first quarter mile is along the lake shore, then crosses over a wooden bridge and heads into a wooded section. The second half of the course is gradually uphill (which means downhill on the return!) and will end at water stop near Culver Rd. It is a paved trail wide enough for perhaps five runners abreast. There is lots of public parking, and the race will start near a large lot. There are several portajohns in the area, including one along the course, but across the street. We will have an aide station at the start – because we are trying to minimize race costs, all donations to be shared would be appreciated.
A 2.2 mile course means 6 laps is just over a half marathon (13.2) and 12 laps is a full (26.4)!
Please consider coming and running/walking a bit. You are not required to run the entire 6 hours. Come run or walk one loop, or run the entire event to reach an ultra distance!
