4th Annual Ray's Trail Race
The 2019 Ray's Trail Race 50k will be held on Saturday, September 28th at 9am. In addition to the 50k we will be hosting a 10-miler and a 5k. The race course will be 10k loop that swings back by the start / finish line around the three mile mark. The trails are a combination of unmodified farm roads, single track, and double track that have around 150-200 feet of elevation per mile.
Local time: 1:20 AM
Some quick race info:
-There will be portajohns located near the start / finish for every loop.
-Each mile of the course averages 150-200 feet of climbing. While this is a lot less than you get with some mountainous races the elevation is deceivingly relentless. Runners swear it is all uphill....which is impossible. It just feels like it is all uphill.
-There is an indoor restroom / changing room. As of right now there is only a cold shower but we hope to have that changed by September 2019.
-Runners will have space to setup a tent / personal aid station area near the course. We have a lot of green space so there is plenty of room for things like that (within reason...if you bring a giant inflatable pub that would be an issue unless the race director gets to drink for free).
-While the course is spectator friendly there is not a lot for people to do other than spectate the race but you do see people every 3-4 miles!
-Soups, drinks, beer, and other post-race food will be served.
-While our races are small we often get some very good runners so there is a good bit of competition.
