30 hours and 100 miles or more
Welcome to the gateway of New England running! The initial running of the 2018, Connecticut's only 30 Hour / 100 mile race, will take place on Saturday, June 30TH with a start time of 8:30 AM and run to July 1ST ending at 2:30 PM or 30 Hours. Run, jog, hike, walk or crawl; go as long as you wish: 25, 50, 75, 100 miles or more, it's up to you. Great way to test yourself for a fall ultra 100, too. There will be a packet pickup between 3 PM and 6 PM, at the forest pavilion, the Friday before (29TH); at this time or early on Saturday Morning (30TH) you can choose a place store gear to be used during the race and for a "rest and refreshment station" in an adjacent field to use for your for 30 hour endeavor, (NO overnight camping allowed per Town Ordinance) . Access to your vehicle will also be nearby, as you loop, through the day and night.
Local time: 1:08 AM
There will be an award for first to fifth overall with the most amount of miles in the 30 hours allocated for running. A buckle (design pending) will be given to all those achieving 100 miles in the 30 hours, but that does not win the race; it is most miles achieved in 30 hours. Pacers are not allowed, the endurance is on you. The course is a slightly rolling roots and rocky terrain that is very runnable, but will become monotonous, as time goes by. The average miles by winners of the 9 hour race is 51 miles in 9 hours. A buckle would look great this 4th of July, but you gotta be bold. Are you in?
