Saturday August 6, 2016 at 8 AM is when the 5th running of the Moose will occur. There will be 2 races to choose from a heavy half Marathon and a 36 mile ultra. Last year was the fourth year and we had our biggest field with 118 runners about evenly split for both races. We also had a record 5 Bears observed by the runners. The weather was perfect. Almost everyone was happy , happy , happy. We had a new finish for the 36 milers on the same trails as the 14 milers finished. Trail marking was near perfect. 2 small glitches will be taken care of for 2016. If you ran this race last year you know we had some Mud and some wonderful stinging nettles. In case you didn't know it takes only about 10 minutes for the itching to stop after you have encountered the nettles. This race is unique in many ways. One such way is you are able to select either technical shirts, cotton shirts, or youth shirts. You will have a choice assuming you sign up early. Anyone signing up late will get a cotton shirt or no shirt depending on how late the sign up is. Color will be a light Green ( I think ). For sizing descriptions please log onto my website before registering unless of course you already know what size works for you. http://www.moosalamooultra.com/ My wife made an extra batch of her yummy home made beans so all the runners got their beans. This race also feeds anyone who comes with you as cheering squad or crew. Another positive change this year is that camping will be free for anyone interested. If you didn't do the race last year but did it in previous years you will be happy to know that 3 showers are now behind the ski center for your use. Bring your own towel. So spread the word and sign up early.
