Packet pick up: at Runner's Soul in Kennewick at 5020 W. Clearwater Ave. on Friday, March 28th, 2014 from 12pm-7pm.
Course: The course consists of footpaths, multi-use trails, dirt roads, and short stretches of pavement on and around Badger, Candy and Red Mountains. The course is going to be an out and back. The surface is a rough jeep track and nice single track. There are several steep 600'-900' climbs and the low elevation is around 550' and the high is 1500'. This region is unique in that there are very few native trees so a person can see for miles in all directions. Remember to dress adequately as it can be very windy on the ridges! (as runners from our 2012 race can attest to!) A few sustained climbs make the cumulative elevation gain near 6,000'.
Aid: stations every 3-6 miles stocked with electrolyte drink and all the goodies you'll need.
Cut-off: there will be an 9 hour cut-off for this distance. This will not be an easy course. It is recommended that those who run the 50k race have completed at least a marathon and have trained properly, or they will have a hard time.
Award: Special awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female finishers. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal to help signify their hard work .
