This event takes an interesting twist on the backyard style of racing! All participants will start their 100k attempt at 6:30am. Almost all will fail! Along the way you can knock out some distance marks but in the end there may only be ONE Winner or possibly No Finishers! The race will tentatively end around 10pm with the last few runners picking up the pace every mile to beat the clock that is diminishing with ever lap!
The cutoff for each lap will be one minute less than the previous lap. We will start the race at 6:30am and give runners 45 minutes to complete the 2 mile loop. Runners completing the laps early must wait for the clock to start the next scheduled lap. If you fail to complete the 2 mile loop in the required time please ring the cowbell and turn in you race bib. On the 31st lap (if we get there) the first runner to complete the lap will be the winner.
This style of event welcomes all paces and levels of runners. If you are looking to knock out your first 50k this event is for you! If you are looking to challenge your furthest distance with 50 miles step right up! And if you are looking to compete and take your challenge to the next level look no further! The course will be trail, rolling, partly shaded! Bring your 10 × 10 pop up, a lawn chair, and lets make it a party. We will recognize participants who complete at least 16 Laps and 25 Laps for 50k and 50 Mile finishes in the results
