50 miles (or 50km) of Northern Kettle fun in the most low key fashion imaginable. We will take off at 4:00 am. That means headlamps... or not, that would be entertaining for the rest of us.
We aren't doing aid stations. So, you're welcome to have crews and pacers for support. However, your own two feet need to cover the entire distance.
No cutoff time. Bust it out in under 8 hours if you like. Or, take 8 days. Send me a txt when you finish and we'll count you as a finisher.
With the exception of a few road crossings this will be entirely on single track trail.
Starting at the Greenbush Group Camp we will run south on the Ice Age Trail. When you get to the Parnell Loop we will do one loop and continue south on the Ice Age Trail to the Highway 28 parking lot. Turn around at Highway 28 and head back to the group camp. No Parnell Loop on the return leg.
The course may be about 1/2 a mile short. Roadies are welcome to run circles in the parking lot until their Garmin says 50 miles!
50km runners will start with everyone else and run the same course. Your turn around will be at SS. We will mark the 50km turn around.
I used some highly sophisticated mapping software to develop these incredibly accurate maps.
Local time: 12:41 AM
Even with such impeccable directions, I fear some of us may get lost along the way. Study the maps. Run in groups if you like (this helps). And remember, if you get lost, it’s the other race directors fault…
