The course will be on a 6 mile loop climbing to the top of Double Oak Mountain. The 12 mile will be two loops of the course. This race was originally planned to be a 7 and 14 mile race but the planned course is significantly more difficult than the previous race courses so I decided 6 and 12 miles was enough. There will be only oneaid station at the start and finish. Runners MUST carry enough water to run 6 miles.
July 15 – Race 4 – Hotter ‘N Hell Trail Race – 9 Mile and 18 Mile Race – Race will start at 8:00 AM.
The fourth of the Southeastern Trail Series Races. The run will start at the Cedar Pavilion and consist of a nine mile and an 18 mile race run on a 9 mile loop. There will be two aid stations per lap. One AS will be located at the Start/Finish and mile nine. Another will be located at about mile 4.6 and on the second lap at mile 13.6. Runners MUST carry enough water to run 4.5 miles in extremely hot conditions because it probably will be Hotter N’ Hell. This is Great Training!
August 26 – Race 5 – Ridge to Blazing Ridge Trail Race – 8:00 AM – Oak Mountain State Park. Race 5 of the Trail Series will have a 10 Mile and 20 Mile option. The route will be challenging with a climb up the Yellow /White Connector and a trip down to Lower Peavine Falls creek and back out of the Peavine Falls gorge.
