The Second Annual Cremator Ultra 50 Mile Endurance
Local time: 6:52 AM
Race was originally created our of necessity... necessity for a mid-summer
training event to prepare for early Fall Ultra events. After several glasses of
wine and a "how tough can we make it" conversation, the Cremator was
Summer running is in fact dangerous and should not be attempted
without proper training. Previous distance running is mandatory and the support
of a responsible Crew Chief is required and is key to finishing the race. The
race begins at 6:00am and has a 14 hour cut off. The average temperatures in
Beaufort, SC in July peaks at 98 degrees with a typical heat index of well over
110 degrees. We moved the race from Hilton Head to Beaufort this year, as there
there was "too much shade on the course" last year.
Runners and Crew
Chiefs will be responsible for signing in at each check-point and leaving PRIOR
to the cut off time. Runners may be supported on foot, but not from a moving
vehicle. The course consists of two 25 mile loops on bike paths with four aid
stations along the course that will each be visited twice.
Each year we
allow a small field of Relay Team made up of 4 or less runners compete in a
seprate division of the Cremator Ultra. We will double our teams this year
allowing 10 Teams. These spots will fill up quickly and we will not be adding
any additional this year.
