About this race:
October 31-November 1, 2020
Wait...isn't that 12 hours?? Nope! It is the time change so you get an EXTRA hour!
How many miles can you complete? Can you make it through the entire night?
Historically this race has bad weather and creepy overtones due to the proximity to Halloween- does this sound fun to you? Join us!
Some different things about this race...
13 hours- that is different
Limited aid will be available- please bring supplies that you will need and support crew if needed. Volunteers are limited for this race.
Please bring some food to share- I will have coffee and basic food, but if the weather is ok we will grill, so bring whatever you want to share and eat yourself.
Awards are also bare bones...male and female winners with the most miles will receive free entry into another Happy Cat Events race. I will have finisher medals for 50k, 50 mile and 100k as well, but that is it for awards.
T-shirts can be ordered separate from registration if you want one. They are not included in the registration fee. I will have a limited number of extras available the night of the race.
Updates as of 10-4-19
THIS INFO IS FROM LAST YEAR AKA PRE COVID-19. THERE WILL BE SOME REVISIONS AS FAR AS FOOD SHARING. I WILL EMAIL OUT INFO SOON! />A few questions that I have received I will share...
You CAN set up tents, etc but not until 7pm on race day.
You can have support people with you at the start finish area. There will be picnic tables, open areas, shelter, restrooms at this spot.
Deadline to order T-shirts if you did not already is October 13
I will provide water and Tailwind (from a dispensing cooler so bring a bottle) at the start/finish area and approx halfway through the loop. I will try and have cups at the halfway point.
The loop is 3.7 miles.
There will be an option to add no more than 2x an out an back section (totaling 1.2 miles each) to get to a mileage goal. You CANNOT do this more than 2x and I would prefer it just in the last hour of the race from 7-8am.
Runners will keep track of their own loops on a board. You make a mark after each loop and totals will be tallied every 4 hours.
If there is dangerous weather, all running will be suspended during the event until it passes. This is a rain or moonshine event.
In the start finish area I will provide fresh coffee all night, coffee supplies, water, Tailwind, mini Cliff bars, a few gels, Halloween candy and weather permitting, charcoal, hamburger and hot dog buns and meat and black bean burgers, condiments.
Please plan to bring extra food for everyone to share like...
Fruit, Gels, granola bars, things to grill, sweets, salty snacks, soda, sandwiches, pizza, etc.
No alcohol is allowed in the Warhill Sports Complex area
The trail is similar to a fire road, wide enough for a gator to drive through. The surface is crushed rock with some uneven sections and possibly slippery bridges. Terrain is rolling. The course will be lit with glow sticks, but personal illumination is required. Each loop is 3.7 miles.
Local time: 6:55 AM
