This is going to be a FIASCO!
You will need to follow directions because there will NOT be any additional trail markings.
There are some signs out there.
They might be helpful. (Probably not)
There will be a map.
There will be directions.
There will be minimally stocked, non-world class aid stations.
They may or may not have volunteers manning them.
The volunteers may or may not try to talk you into quitting.
Only sign up if you have the grit to finish something that challenges you.
This cannot be your first ultra distance event.
You MUST have finished a certified/sanctioned/official 50k with published results within the 12 months BEFORE you REGISTER. If you register without meeting this criteria because you didn't read this line, I will keep your registration fee and delete your registration. Consider it a reading lesson. Cheaper than college, but the lesson is priceless
This is a no hand holding, no sweet talking, no messing around FIASCO.
There are no shorter distances, and I am sure anyone who finishes will end up going farther than 50 miles.
At 50k(ish) there will be a DNF party at the Start/Finish.
We will have margaritas and cold beer and comfy chairs and every reason you can imagine to QUIT.
However, nothing short of 50 miles will count as a finish.
You want that finish? You'll have to muster the gumption and gird your loins to head back out for the finish.
Limited to 30 people.
The first year there were no finishers. None.
Hell, no one even made the 50k cutoff. And they had NINE HOURS.
The second year there was only ONE finisher!
All you have to do is click register above and pony up the cash and then you'll find out whether you've got what it takes to finish.
One thing is promised: there will be a plethora of ass kicking going on!
The only question: Are you going to kick ass or get your ass kicked?
Shamelessly stolen from Luis Escobar:
“Finally – please remember that there will be NO refunds – NO transfers – NO exceptions. Do not ask for a refund or a transfer to another date or event – the answer is a polite, no. There will be no refunds even if your cat ate your homework or your dog ate your cat or your grandmother ran over your dog or your grandfather ran over your grandmother or you can’t find a babysitter or your girlfriend is cheating on you or you are cheating on your girlfriend or you get shot in the head during an unfortunate piñata incident, or if you become injured or if you don’t have time to train or if you contract poison oak, syphilis, herpes simplex, chapped lips, the heart break of psoriasis or any other communicable decease or you get bit by a lizard, you have a hangover or you got shot in the neck with a poison dart or your trailer gets destroyed by a tornado or you get deported or your daughter gets married, or any other reason – your registration will not, under any circumstances, no way, no how, ain’t gonna happen, be refunded. Comprende? Don’t like that idea? Don’t register.”
