Want a flatter course to test out all that speed work you've been doing?
High altitude runners, feel like testing yourself in some low elevation and high humidity?
Check out this new race in the deep swampy south. A 10hr night ultra on a short course that is sure to be fast, but mind the roots and mosquitoes because they are hungry for a win too.
This trail is a gem in the heart of Louisiana. You've heard about the local Louisiana food right, you almost couldn't ask for a better spot to consider a runcation!
Please note, this is an OVERNIGHT run.
This 10 hour endurance event will feature a 2-4 mile loop with a full aid station available each loop.*
Each runner is required to carry a light source and hydration solution for every loop. Plan for heat and humidity as this is a run through a Louisiana Summer Night!
*As soon as the course is finalized this information will be updated.
