Hydration

Silver Star Nutrition will be offering their Endurace Formula in Lemon Lime flavor at the Aid Stations

Endurance Formula was created to help ultra-endurance athletes. It is intended to avoid the “gut rot” feeling from endurance drinks that are high in excess sugars. We also aimed to include protein because of the brutal toll endurance activities take on the body. Endurance Formula is available in four flavors: Blueberry, Blackberry, Lemon Lime, and Sour Grape.

Silver Star Nutrition Endurance Formula Features

Whey Protein Concentrate has a high biological value. It provides the nine essential amino acids the body needs.

Whey Protein Concentrate is a less processed protein and digests at a slower rate than Whey Protein Isolate.

Avocados are a nutrient-dense fruit that contains more potassium than bananas. They are fiber-rich and high in antioxidants. Avocados contain oleic acid and other monounsaturated fatty acids.

Course records

In 2021 Rachel Ragonia connects me via email asking about the course and type of shoes to wear. After my response, she tries trail running and some new shoes one week before the event. At mile two when you saw her, you know she was going to run fast, and fast she did. Breaking the long-time CR that has stood since 2012 by little over a minute. Rachel time - 4:34:34 t.

In 2017 Chase Coffey from Altra Shoes ran with Adam Doe to the turnaround. Adam had hopes of a course record after running very strong the previous year. However, he took a stumble and twisted his knee around mile 13 and eventually was not able to finish. Chase hit the turnaround averaging 7:30's and then was left to himself to bring it in. And bring it in he did! Dropped the hammer the second with negative splits of 6:30 on the way back.

I Beat .......... Shirts

The first year that Frontrunner took over the event I came up with the idea of a shirt that read I beat Matt Long on it which was given to people who finished in front of him. The shirt was not mentioned to anyone before the race until 5 mins before the start. The shirt introduction was "since I can not run today due to directing the race, I will not be able to beat my good friend Matt Long, I will then have to live vicariously thru you guys.So who ever finishes in front of Matt will receive on of this shirts." I had my fingers crossed that this would be meet with humor. It was. Matt was a fantastic sport that day. A new shirt with a new name on it is shown 5 minutes before the race.2022 Erika Lohn 2021 Laurel Sipe (supe) 2020 cancelled 2019 Matt McCarty 2018 IJim Wilson

Course Map

Click Here for Course Map

There is abundance of small hills along both courses. Only one major uphill which is at the finish both races. I would say that there isn't much technical running with lots of rocks and roots however this isn't road running either.
You will interesting landmarks to see along the course. Run next to many lakes such as South Shattuck Lake, Dans Lake and Plummer Lake. 20 other ones to see. Run up rattlesnake hill before heading thru a field, balance your way across Three Sisters boardwalk, Kim's Crossing which is a bridge done in memory of Kim by her Dad after Kim was killed by a drunk driver, and over a 3 foot high by 100 foot long no hand bridge thru tall pines in a swamp.
