What is it?
An off-road 7.8 mile Trail Run. We run along single-track trails through the scenic Pere Marquette State Park. Ours is considered the toughest & most grueling race in the Midwest!
You ... that is if you are a runner looking to get off the road & try a real challenge. We accept no Wimps or Whiners. Harsh penalties exist for anyone caught looking Wimpish or acting Whiner-like.
7.8 miles over very hilly terrain. Racers start in heats (every 30 seconds) according to their best 10K time (or estimated 10K time) this year. .
Stay at the Lodge or there are many fine B&B's in the Alton and Grafton area. http://www.teamgodzilla.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=19&Itemid=33
