Where: The Western Maryland Rail Trail - Big Pool Entrance https://goo.gl/maps/nyS5VYbJtcU7BijdA
Who: Open to all current Run Squad members! Family/Support is encouraged to volunteer and cheer you on! We can NOT have non-Squad members compete in this event please.
Distances: 5k - 10k - Half Marathon - Marathon - 50k Please scroll to the RSVP form below to register for your event.
How: We will start in waves, spaced 3-5minutes apart - Marathon/50k first, at 7:00am. Then Half-Marathon. Then 5k/10k. The course will be out-and-back style for all distances. We will have an aid station set-up at mile 6.55 (turnaround for the half marathon, and also mile 19.5 for the marathon. If participation is high, I will add a small aid station at mile 13.1 turnaround for the marathon.) Each runner will bring their own aid station materials (premixed water bottle, baggie with fuel, etc.), labeled with your name, that we will transport to the aid station for you. (I will be looking for 1-2 volunteers to help with the aid station that day!) Results will be based on YOUR watch data. As in a true race, the clock does not stop or pause for any reason! This is important for authentic results! I will be verifying this in your Final Surge data, and I will create a real results page!
Virtual: If you do not live in the vicinity, you CAN compete with us virtually! I am asking that it be ON the same day, and hold the same watch-timing standards.
Awards: It's Halloween - For your efforts, I'll have full-size candy bar awards for you at the finish line! Please stick around after your finish to cheer on your fellow squad members!
