THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
It is with great sadness that we must inform you that we will be canceling The Widow Maker Ultra and Whisky Still 5k. As I am sure you are all aware the Covid-19 (Corona) virus has become of some concern. As this virus is very contagious and there is still so much that we do not know we are going to err on the side of caution. Large social gatherings have been highly discouraged by our medical community and as a result most races have been responsibly cancelled or postponed. We believe it would be careless for us to put runners, volunteers, and staff needlessly in harms way. Fortunately we are in a position that we can issue full refunds. Please look for these over the next week or two. Please be patient as we work thru getting these issued. Please continue to support Sprewell Bluff park! We will inform everyone if we decide to put on the race later this year or just wait till next year.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during these unprecedented times.
Run Fast. Run Far. Run Free.
***T-shirt deadline extended to March 16***
Revolution Running is excited to announce a new trail race on the Southside! The Widow Maker at Beautiful Sprewell Bluff Park in Thomaston, Georgia. Just 50 miles south of Atlanta Sprewell Bluff Park is one of the most beautiful and best kept secrets in Georgia. It features the gently flowing Flint River that meanders thru steep Rocky Bluffs. When you see the magnificent views from the bluffs you won't believe you are in South Georgia. Proceeds to benefit Sprewell Bluff Park!
Sunrise to Sunset Ultra Marathon
Whoever can run the most loops of The Widow Maker Trail from 7:30 AM (Sunrise) to 7:55 PM (Sunset) wins the race! Run as many loops as you can until The Widow Maker has you begging for mercy. This trail is mostly single track and has some very steep and technical sections. Although this trail is beautiful most of you will want to quit after just one loop.
Whisky Still 5k
If running from Sunrise to Sunset scares you then you can choose the 5k option. The 5k will begin at 8 am and runs by an old whisky still.
There is plenty of parking at the park. Please be prepared to pay the 5$ parking pass. This is not included in the race fee.
There are both cabins and camping available if you want to stay in the park. Please visit their website for details. http://www.thomastongachamber.com/sprewell-bluff-park
Awards will be given to the top male and female in both the Sunrise to Sunset and 5k options. Top male and female will receive a whisky jug. All runners in the ultra marathon will receive a unique shot glass. Top 3 in each age group for the 5k will receive a unique mason jar. All runners will receive a race t-shirt. You must sign up by March 8 to be guaranteed a t-shirt.
There will be an aid station at the start/finish of the loop that will have all the usual fare. Food, water, and electrolytes.
Local time: 5:16 AM
