9:45 am: Pre-race instructions.

  • Please report each completed loop to a volunteer before heading back out so we can keep track of your progress. We can also then upload news updates to Twitter and Just kidding.
  • The full 50K is 6 loops (31+ miles) through Bridle Trails State Park.
  • DNFs ARE encouraged! (Please be considerate enough to complete at least one full loop (5.2 miles) so we do not worry that you got lost or abducted.)

9:52 am: Pledge of Allegiance

9:54 am: God Bless America

9:56 am: Star Spangled Banner

10:00 am: The race begins!*

*By which we mean, the clock starts and you start drinking your beer! The event follows the standard beer mile protocol that states you drink before you run. So once you’ve finished your first beer, you’re clear to start your loop(s). A fresh (and full) glass of beer will await your return. The beer provider is Flying Lion Brewing and variety TBD. And let us reiterate that non-alcoholic folks can also participate with their (preferably carbonated) beverage of choice, but they will not qualify for the overall race victory.

The race (as well as each loop) will start and finish at the home of the very generous SRC member Peter Kline. If you’d like to play basketball in between loops, I’m sure that can be arranged.
