Big Hill Bash Ultra (5k,10k,8hr)
Race Date: Saturday October 26th, 2019
Race Start: Big Hill Community Park, Beloit, WI
Start Times: 8:00am
This will be the 2nd annual Big Hill Bash Ultra. It will consist of a scenic 5k loop through Big Hill Community Park. Each loop has approx. 400 feet of elevation gain. The 5k will obviously complete one loop, the 10k will complete two loops, and the 8 hour runners will attempt to complete as many loops as they can in an 8 hour time limit. While this is certainly not an “easy” course it can still be a great choice for your first trail 5k, 10k, or ultra that is if you are ready for a good amount of climbing.

The Big Hill Bash Ultra hosts three races simultaneously, Each distance will have its own unique race number (unique color and number series) so runners can be easily identified by race officials, volunteers, spectators and other runners. We ask that all competitors wear their number on the front of their body on their outer-most layer at all times. Runners will be tracked coming into and out of each aid station. If we cannot see your number, we cannot track you or take your finishing time and if we cannot do that, you will be disqualified and will not earn an official finish
The course will be marked with orange flags. They will always be on the left hand side of the trail except on the bottom of ski hill where there will be two-way traffic, in that area the flags will be on both sides.
There will be one fully stocked and staffed aid station at the start/finish of the loop. There will also be a water station at the bottom of the ski hill. The stations are manned by volunteers– please be sure to thank the volunteers!
