Athletic Equation will be hosting its 8th Annual 12-Hour ATR on 20 SEPT 2014. The field will be limited to 100 Runners. We will be building off of the successes of our other ATRs. In our first 7 runnings, participants have claimed over 12,500 miles on the Prince William Forest Park trails. This year's 12-HR ATR is combined with the "ICY-8" HR ATR, the MT TAMMANY 10!, 24-HR ATR and the OSS/CIA 50M Night Run to conclude the 2014 AE MINI Ultra Trail Series. Bottom Line: Not the fastest, but the runner with the most mileage WINS THE SERIES!!! Imagine That....
The 12-HR ATR will be held in Prince William Forest Park (PWFP), www.nps.gov/prwi just outside of Triangle, VA in Prince William County. The Park is 17,000+ acres and has over 40 miles of trails. The course will be on a DIFFERENT set of trails than our 24-Hour ATR. The course will be a 6.5 mile looped figure eight (8). It is designed to challenge the novice and experienced trail runners alike. It will be 100% trails, some single track, and some fire road. The approximate elevation gain/loss is 650 feet / per loop. The terrain will have undulating hills with some nice ascents and descents to keep trail runners on their game and keep them honest. There will be rocks; there will be roots, dirt, and mud if it rains. There will be two aid stations. The primary aid station will be the Start/Finish. It will have a plentiful array of sustenance (food) to cover everyone through out the event. The second aid station will ONLY have H2O. The 12-HR is concluded with the awards ceremony and Post-Race Meal for participants and crews.
Local time: 4:15 AM
