The Madness Description
The McKay Hollow Madness Trail Run is roughly 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) of mostly single track trail. The course is run on sections of the Sinks, Panther Knob, Stone Cut, Mountain Mist, Goat, Warpath Ridge, McKay Hollow, Arrowhead and Natural Well Trails. This is a technical race with some difficult climbs and descents. There will be TWO aid stations: the first at O'Shaughnessy Point (~5.1 miles) and the other at the South Monte Sano Trailhead off of Monte Sano Blvd (~9.8 miles).
This year we are incorporating a 12K option. The 25K and 12K will start together. Around mile 5.5, the 25Ker's will drop down McKay Hollow, and the 12Ker's will continue straight to the finish. 12Ker's will only have the aid station at ~5.1 and then the finish.
In the event of rain, prepare yourself for an awesome time in the mud and water. My fondest memories of this race is when the water is flowing.
Warning! This ain't no Warrior Dash or Tough Mudder...This is the McKay Hollow Madness.
Time Limits : For your own safety and respect for the volunteers, there will be STRICT CUTOFF TIMES SET AT BOTH AID STATIONS (1h 45m to Aid Station #1 (8:45 a.m.) and 3h 15m to Aid Station #2 (10:15 a.m.) ). IF YOU ARRIVE AT EITHER AID STATION AFTER THE POSTED CUTOFF TIME YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE. THE FINAL FINISH CUTOFF TIME WILL BE 5 HOURS.
Medical & Aid: Medical assistance will be provided by H.E.M.S.I. There will be TWO aid stations, both full service(consult course map) at ~5.1 miles and ~9.8 miles. It is recommended that you carry at least one bottle of fluids with you the entire run. In addition be advised that limited food items will be provided at the TWO Aid Stations, so if you have any particular caloric needs you need to remember to pack it in and out.
