Check out the Catamount Ultra course at Trapp Family Lodge as a training run or just for fun! Jack Pilla with Hoka One One will be on site with demos!
This will be an unsanctioned/unofficial event aimed at giving interested runners and registered racers a chance to check out the course. Join us for a moderate paced group run starting at 9:15am (~ 10 min/miles) or create a group with like paced friends! Race course maps will be available. Trail conditions and cows may dictate some minor adjustments but the goal will be to follow the course as it will be on race day as closely as possible. Intended run distance 15.5 miles. You are welcome to shorten the run or go for multiple laps as you wish!
All runners are welcome but please be prepared for rugged, mixed trail conditions and you should be prepared to be self-sufficient. I will hand out maps and answer questions but the course will not be marked. There will not be runner support (aid stations, event medical support, etc.) available. You can buy gels and bars and that type of thing in the Trapps Outdoor Center, and the Blue Donkey makes for some great post training run recovery grub!
More race course details for the official event on June 23 are available here: www.catamountultra.com/course
Participants of this meetup will be required to pay for a Trapp Family Lodge trails pass for the day but they will be half price!
