Not Yo Momma's 100 is an awesome ultra trail race at Great Seal State Park in Chillicothe, OH. It includes a 25k, 50k, 50 Mile, 100k and the most bad-ass 100 miler in Ohio.
Our course is a 25k loop. Well, actually it is sort of a loop/out-n-back hybrid a little over 16 miles. It is a loop with about 2600' of climbing. This translates to roughly 16,000 feet of climbing for the 100 milers :) The trail can be pretty gnarly with roots and rocks and has lots of beautiful single-track. The course is 99% trail with only two very short road sections (less than 1/2 a mile total per loop).
25k = 1 loop
50k = 2 loops
50 Mile = 3 loops + a 2 mile section. The 2 mile section will be ran first.
100k = 4 loops
100 Mile = 6 loops + a four mile section that includes Sugarloaf (our toughest climb)
100 milers will run their extra 4 mile section first, and then begin the full 25k loops.
There are three aid stations along the loop. The first is at the start/finish area. The second is located at 4.6 miles going out, and 13.3 miles coming back. The third is situated at 10.4 miles.
Aid Stations will be stocked with Hammer Nutrition products, PB&J's, chips, pop, pretzels, candies, cookies and more. We will also have hot foods available like grilled cheese, pizza, soups and broth.
We have really tried to include options for our vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and paleo runners. Make sure you ask our awesome volunteers what options they have for your dietary needs. Keep in mind that you should bring any specific items you can't live without :)
Aid Stations will be stocked with First Aid supplies.
Please bring a water bottle or other hydration container. We have joined many of our trail racing friends in an effort to produce less waste at our events. We will have cups available but appreciate your help in cutting down on trash.
Drop bags are permitted in the start/finish area for all runners.
Drop bags are permitted at aid station #3 for runners in the 50 Mile, 100k and 100 mile only. You may drop off your bags the evening before or on race morning. We will have a designated area for bags going out to AS #3.
Please make sure drop bags are water proof! Those bags going out to AS #3 may not be under cover.
We are not responsible for any loss or damage to items in drop bags.
Drop bags will not come back to the start/finish until the conclusion of the race on Sunday morning. We do our best to get drop bags back early for individuals who have dropped or need to leave earlier, but please plan accordingly. There will be a return area at AS#3. If you would like to have your bag come back sooner, please move it over to the return area.
Park rest rooms are available in the start/finish area and the day-use area. Port-a-johns will also be available in all aid station areas.
You MUST report to the RDs (Rob or Angie Carroll) or an aid station volunteer if you decide to drop from the race. This is for your safety!
If you need to drop at AS#2 or AS#3, we will provide a ride back to the start. Please be aware that you may have to wait a few minutes for that ride.
All races begin in the campgrounds at Great Seal State Park.
The 100k and 100 mile races step off at 5:30am.
The 25k and 50k begin at 7:30am.
This year we are offering an early start for those doing the 100 that feel they need a little extra time. For those stating at 4:30 previous arrangements must be made with the RD and please note that your first loop will be un-aided. Aid stations will not be open until after the official start. Runners will need to plan accordingly for their first loop.
Primitive camping is available in the State Park campgrounds- which also happens to be the start/finish area! We typically sell-out of camping spots so make sure to get yours early. We think this is the best way to experience the event because you get to mingle with lots of other runners before, during and after your race!
If you would like to reserve a camping spot you can do that through us. Simply add camping when you register, check out our website for camping only links or email email@example.com.
Tent spots are $10/night and you will be sharing your space with up to three others. There are four RV spots available for $40 for the weekend. There are no hook ups or electric within the campgrounds. Rv spots insure that you will have the parking strip for the RV .
A runner may switch races anytime PRIOR TO THE START OF THE FIRST RACE at 5:30am. You may NOT switch distances anytime after the start. This is the only rule I am hardcore about people! Please make sure to sign up for the distance you really want! No credit will be give for shorter distances completed.
There will be a $7 fee to switch distances after September 15
Headlamps and/or flashlights are required for any running in the dark. This is for your safety and is at the RDs' discretion.
PLEASE NOTE: Sunrise is estimated for 7:30am, which means it will most likely be dark in the woods at the start of all races. Please plan accordingly.
