Freetown 50k Trail Race

110 Slab Bridge Road

Assonet, MA 50K, 17.2 Miler

This Event Took Place Sun. Sep 17, 2017

Presented by Team Spark

The Freetown 50k (okay it's 35 miles) course is one of the most technical in New England. While this type of course attracts the most elite runners, we built it for everyone to challenge themselves as well as their fellow racers. Team work is encouraged. We designed the 17.5 mile loop to offer technical singletrack as well as fire roads. This year you'll get to (yes, "get to") climb the famed "Fire Tower" which for years has been overgrown. You get to do it right after you climb "Hold On Loosely," yay! We have three well stocked feed zones per lap and at least one self-serve water point.

We want you to see Freetown in all of its gnarly awesomeness and we want to challenge you. When you eventually collect yourself and head home you'll know that you accomplished something.

We've added a One-Lap option, just in case there's anyone that only wants to love Freetown 50% as much.

Time Limit

We wish we didn't need to have one but it will get dark at some point and you'll be much harder to find once that happens. Your overall time limit is 9 hours which means you need to be on your second lap 4.5 hours in, which is 2pm. At 2pm our crew will close the course and our sweep team will head out to collect course markings.

On Course Support

You are expected to carry everything that you'll need to complete this event unsupported. However, we do support you! If you have specific wants and needs you set up your own gear spot at the start/finish so that you may fuel up before the start of Lap 2. You can also bring your own bag before 8:30am and we can deliver it to the Gu/HotShot Feed Zone.

Our Gu/HotShot Feed Zone is two sided and located at roughly mile 8 and mile 14 of the loop. It will be manned by Danielle from Gu, Lillian from HotShot, and several Team Spark members. The Gu/HotShot Feed Zone will have:

Water
Gu Roctane Hydration Mix
Gu Energy Gel
HotShot Anti-Cramping Sports Beverage
Coca-Cola
Ginger Ale
UnCrustables
Bananas
Pretzels
Potato Chips
M&M's
Cookies

Please do not rely solely on the Feed Zone to support you!
