Come join LUR for the 3rd annual Sleepy 50k run in the Northlake Nature Center located in Mandeville, Louisiana
This fun run started as a way of friends logging birthday miles three mere years ago. At that time there was no course and no marked trails. There were just a few of us getting together for a group run. The run has gained a life of it's own though, and will be holding strong as a 50k,+1 mile. This is a great first trail ultra.
Per usual LUR style, we only provide marked trails and heckling so bring your own supplies. We will be out there all day for you to finish though, so don't worry about a time limit.
The route will be single track trails in the Nature Center. You will pass by bathrooms and water along the course, but water is not available at the start so bring enough to get you started. There is a port-o-let at start and real bathrooms along the course. Although not set yet, the course will likely consist of a couple loops to get the 50k mileage.
Start will be the covered pavilion at the trailhead of the Northlake Nature Center. It's easy enough to find for first timers.
Camping available at Fountainbleau State Park a rocks throw away from the start of the Nature Center. Plenty of hotels nearby in Mandeville.
