What’s to LOVE?
Running groups unite. One of the great things about a fixed-time (rather than fixed-distance) event is you can bring your running mates and everyone finishes at the same time. For groups with a lot of pace variance between runners, this is a really nice benefit.
Finish Spring with a distance PR. With 6 or 12 hours, you can stretch out to set a new distance PR. I’ll be shooting for something between 40 and 50 miles to test myself ahead of a pretty grueling Fall race schedule that includes 200K across 5 weeks.
Your very own aid station. With a short, loop track, you can setup your own aid station in the runners’ area and stock it with all your favorite goodies - and maybe a massage therapist:-) It’s nice to have your favorites available without having to lug them around in your pack all day.
