This race offers
a perfect opportunity for runners to enter the exiting world
of trail (ultra)running . This is a good course to run your first ultra or a PR if the weather cooperates. We accomplish this by providing a course that is well marked
& not too technical.The course
features different surfaces. Some soft and occationally sandy spots
along the creek, a lot of smooth single track as well as some
wider flat gravel trail. Every loop includes about 1 mile of
paved bike trail. There is some elevation, but the
climbs are short.
This course is very runnable and easy by
trail running standards, which as experienced runners will know, can
make it even more challenging, because it will not give you many
opportunities where you can/should hike.

awards come from the Black Forest of Germany. They
are german weather houses. They can predict future weather
pretty much as reliable as "Glen Hurrican Schwarz" . Here is
how they work:
There is a gut string inside which reacts to all
changes in air humidity. Depending on wether the air is dry or humid,
the gut string changes it's position and twists more or less, so that
the female turns outside when it is dry (predicting nice weather) and
the male, when it is humid. We will go 3 deep for 18-29, 30-39,
40-49, 50-59 and winner 60+ .
