About the event

This beloved lowcountry favorite is returning for another year! This year's event will be held at JF Gregory Park in historic downtown Richmond Hill, GA on June 24, 2017. Both 25k and 50k races will start at 5pm. This course consists of a flat and fast 3.1 mile loop through a wetland nature preserve; 50k participants to complete 10 laps, and 25k participants to complete 5 laps within an 8 hour time cutoff for the event. Run past tidal marsh through maritime forest on a partial dirt trail and partial pavement sidewalk. We recommend choosing shoes appropriate for varied trail surface. Course is wide enough in all places for 2-3 runners abreast, providing for easy passing of other participants. Runners will go over three bridge crossings, and at no time will the tidal creek water cover the trail. Running this course will give racers plenty of opportunity to spot gators, turtles, waterfowl, and other marsh nature. We ask that all runners demonstrate respect for the trail by disposing of their trash/litter in the receptacles provided; anyone caught littering will be disqualified. Every loop will start and finish at the main aid station. In addition to providing hydration and standard ultra-race fare, there will also be plenty of space at this aid station for your own gear drop. If you have special dietary needs, please be sure to bring those specific items with you as we cannot guarantee provision for everyone's unique circumstances. In our continued effort to host low environmental impact racing, this will be a cup-free event-- please bring your own hand-held/hydration system. Borrowing from the tradition of the previous "Marsh" races, all entrants will receive an Ouray brand trucker-style hat that made these races famous. (Must be registered by June 10, 2017 to be guaranteed hat by the event date.)

Local time: 4:39 PM
