WE ARE MAKING PREPARATIONS TO SEE YOU, AND ARE EXCITED TO DO SO! IN THE MEANTIME, STAY SAFE, AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR RUNNING!
RUTS Paradise, a 12hr/6hr/3hr timed event scheduled for Saturday, April 10, is proud to have American Senior Communities (ASC) as its presenting sponsor.
Another really cool thing about RUTS Paradise, are the race directors! None other than your very own… Cathy Downes, Kristy Denton, and Big Sexy Jen Metcalf!
Paradise, a suburb of Newburgh IN, and just a few miles from Evansville, IN, is home of Friedman Park. Run or walk as much as you like in a 12hours. If 12 hours is longer than you’d like, then choose the 6 hour, or 3 hour option.
RUTS Paradise ASC 3/6/12 hour options
8 AM start – Friedman Park, Paradise (Newburgh) IN
We’re doing something a little different for RUTS in Paradise. All distances begin at 8 AM! Shall we call it Run Under The Sun?
Run, jog, walk, rest, stop and start as much as you’d like.
The objective is to see how far you can go; however, you can stop at any time if you’ve reached your goal or if you’ve had enough. The Paradise course will be a USATF sanctioned event. Surface is a 1km paved loop in beautiful Friedman Park.
REASONS FOR RUNNING RUTS: Perfect social running event with serious results. Unlike marathons, and non-loop events, you see your friends the entire time, giving you opportunities to run or walk with some runners you’d never get to run with. No steep hills, no trip hazards, no traffic.
This could possibly be the course you’ll set a personal best for whatever distance you run. Knowing that your vehicle is close by, you have the confidence to keep going.
On Site Parking is available in the large parking lot. NOTE: Please do NOT park in the grass. It will not be necessary due to the close proximity of the parking lot to the course.
SET UP: We will be on-site by 5am, so you can set up beginning any time after then. You can set up a tent, table, or chairs alongside the course. There is plenty of room. This is a good one to bring the family to. You can stop and see them as much as you like. Encourage them to run or walk a few laps with you. They love it, and so do we. We only ask that you carry your trash out with you if at all possible.
DOGS: We love dogs, however they are NOT allowed on the course as part of the race. IF you bring your dog, you will need to keep them on a leash, and out of the way of other runners, or guests.
RELAY TEAMS – 2 or 4 persons accepted for the 12 hour only. (your team can stop whenever you wish, you don’t have to go the entire 12 hours; there are just no separate categories for shorter times).
The Team is given a special bib number on a quick change belt. Every member of the team also receives their own bib number. Whoever is accumulating mileage for the team must wear the Team belt with the bib on it, in addition to their individual bib number (meaning you’ll wear two bibs when accumulating for the Team). Team members are allowed to run extra mileage even when not wearing the Team belt, however runners on a Team are NOT eligible for individual awards.
Team Awards are given to the Top 5 Teams. (regardless of 2 or 4 members).
