Come Run at The Coleman Retreat!
We get to do it again! Welcome to the 2nd annual RETREAT REPEAT!
Start the New Year off right at the Retreat Repeat 8 hour run! Come out to the Coleman Retreat in the middle of the Francis Marion National Forest and put some miles in on an approximately 1.8 mile looped course. The course will circle the property and consist of open fields and hardwoods. Run as many or as few miles/laps as you want to in 8 hours.
This event has been created by Runners for Runners! Our goal is to have fun and provide a space for an Runner family reunion of sorts. If you are a new runner, this is still an awesome event for you! The ultra/trail running community is one of the best. Come join our tribe! This is a great opportunity to put in a final long run before some of the local 24 hr or 100 mile events coming up or a great chance to set a distance PR if you have not dabbled a lot in long distance/timed running. Run fast or run slow, just don’t miss out on the party at the Retreat.
There is now camping allowed on the property Friday night starting at 5pm. Put up your tent and enjoy some time by the fire before racing the next day. Small campers can be accommodated but will not have any hook ups. No additional cost but a bundle of firewood would be really awesome!
It’s stupid cheap. $30. We are charging only to cover the necessities and some swag! This covers a hooded sweatshirt, Porta Johns, race insurance, burger after party, use of the property, and a timing company. I am a runner and this is a labor of love. NOTHING goes into my pocket, seriously. This is about the awesome trail and ultra community and having a chance to run and hang out together.
This event will be chip timed. Only full laps will count and all laps must be complete before the clock hits 8 hours.
Runners age 15 and under run for free with a registered parent! Message me for a promo code once the parent has registered. Please do not select a shirt size for your free young runner.
This was awesome last year! Every runner must bring an item to place on the aid station table. We had so much and such a unique table of food to share. Best aid station I've ever seen. If you want pickles, bring pickles. Pringles, bring Pringles to share. ETC. Bring something that makes you and others happy! A link to a google.doc sign up sheet will be sent out when the race is getting close.
I will provide water, tailwind, bacon and grilled cheese, burgers, veggie burgers and hot dogs.
I'm excited to announce that Tailwind Nutrition is sponsoring the Retreat Repeat! Tailwind Nutrition will be provided on course at a 200 calorie/24oz of water concentration. This means that in a large water bottle, you'll get 200 calories, along with electrolytes matching what you sweat out (sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium)
At the conclusion of the race there will be burgers and a bonfire. Food will be available for everyone at the after party. If more than just the runner intends to eat please let me know how many (in addition to the runner) will eat.
A huge thank you to The Foot Store of Mount Pleasant, Santee Hardware, Run4P (MooreOn Running) and Eagle Endurance for partnering with me to make this event happen!
