For those of you who don’t know this run, here is what you get for your zero dollar entry fee:
- A tough course with lots of turns and no markings.
- No real aid stations, but some dropped water and goodies in the woods (you can volunteer to drop some drinks or food here or there)
-No one checking on you to see if you are lost or worse
-Lots of history- run continuously since 1997 this is by far the oldest TARC ultra event. It dates back to the true beginnings of the club before the current resurrection.
These events will be less organized than in years previous to 2014 because of pressure from DCR Rangers. THERE WILL BE NO MANNED AID STATION across from headquarters. These will be more like our weekend runs with group starts and some fluids will be dropped along the course. The course was slightly redesigned (in 2014) to allow for self-service aid at mile 16 at your own vehicle which must be left at the Houghton's Pond lot.
Aid drop assignments will go out about a week before the run.
