The Miocene Epic Endurance Challenge is a brand new trail race on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County, Maryland. The event will take place at Calvert Cliffs State Park in Lusby, Maryland. The race consists of a 5 mile loop where runners will have up to 6 hours to run as much or as little as they would like. All runners will receive a Miocene Epic pint glass and post-run barbeque. Runners will have the option at registration checkout to enter the Challenge Division (see below).
Calvert Cliffs State Park is located at 10540 H. G. Trueman Road, Lusby, MD, 20657. Each loop begins and ends at the picnic pavilion. The race starts at 9am and will end at 3pm. The park opens at dawn (~7am) leaving runners with plenty of time to park, check in, and relax before the start.
At registration checkout, you will have the option to pay $10 to join the Challenge Division. In the Challenge Division, runners will begin each loop at the top of the hour. Upon completing each loop, your finishing position for that loop earns you points (ex: 1st=1 point, 2nd=2 points, 3rd=3 points, and so on). Regardless of how fast you finish each loop, you will wait until the top of the hour to run the next loop. At the end of 6 loops, your final finish position is determined by your total points earned, with the lower number of points being better (think cross country scoring)! Challenge Division participants will be eligible for overall prizes based on final finishing position at the end of 6 loops.
