The Last Man Standing Ultramarathon is a different type of event with a new “race” starting every hour on the hour. There will be no male, female, or age group awards, only the Last Man (athlete) Standing.
The course will be a 4.2 mile trail loop with nice double track and some moderate elevation gain. It will be an easy loop to finish in under an hour for most people. At least for the first few times around! The loop will be on the same trails as 2016 but for 2017 we will run the oposite direction (counter clockwise).
Racing starts at 12 noon on Saturday with a shotgun start. Men and women will complete the course at whatever pace they choose, but they MUST complete the loop in less than 60 minutes! Those that complete the course in under an hour will earn the right to continue. The next gun start is at 1pm. Same loop, same rules apply. The race continues in this format until there is only one athlete remaining (standing). The lone athlete must be standing at the starting line ready for the next start to be declared the Last Man Standing and the winner.
Race organizers will have provide a 40′ X 80′ tent with Beer on Tap (yes we’ll have it this year) and a band playing Saaturday night from 7pm-10pm. We’ll have Phil’s BBQ back for another year from 4pm-10pm on Saturday. We strongly encourage you to visit Pineland Farms Market for fantastic locally grown and prepared foods.
New “race” starts every hour on the hour. You must complete the loop in under 1 hour to continue on.
