COULD YOU BE A GOLDEN HAWK?
The Golden Hawk Endurance Challenge Slam challenges runners to run ESR -- Every Single Race -- all seven of them, on the Trail Hawks calendar in a single season, from Pi Day to Sanders Saunter. In races with multiple distances, you can choose any distance. The key is ESR. You must still pay entry fees for each race. There is a Golden Hawk entry fee -- $90 ($80 for dues-paying Trail Hawks, natch -- contact event director Gary Henry for the discount code) as well -- it covers a long-sleeved T for all entrants, a personalized hoodie and personalized hand-thrown pottery mug for all finishers. Your total miles are included on hoodie and mug! If you run the max distances in each race, for instance, you are a finisher "Golden Hawk 204.4 Mi." Minimum distances -- you are Golden Hawk 57.7 Mi." We'll track what you do throughout the year and put that number, with your name on the finisher's swag. You must register by Jan. 1, 2019. You must attend the 2019 All Hands Meeting in January, typically the third Saturday, where the Golden Hawk Challenger Class will be publicly inducted in an "Imperious Rex" ceremony. Finishers will get their swag and be honored at the All Hands Meeting 2020, following which, the next Challenger Class will be inducted. Can you run ESR? If so, you could be a GOLDEN HAWK!
