Now, teams of 5 are able to break down the mileage so that any one runner only needs to be able to cover 12 miles at an average of a 14 minute pace to be able to finish within the time limit. This way, hopefully, more folks will be tempted to create a team and see what all of the buzz around trail running is all about.
Don't fret, though! For our long distance lovers, we also have an "Ultra Division" for teams of two. The award categories go as follows:
2 Person Team
3 Person Team
4 Person Team
5 Person Team
If we get more than 10 teams in any division, we will go to second and third place awards as well.
This means that the race will start at 7 am on March 21, 2020 and end at 9 pm, allowing all teams to hang around for the finish to cheer for their fellow runners. I think this will make the whole experience more exciting for everyone.
New logo / medals being designed as we speak. I will post them when I have a proof.
