Painful Elimination
Aug 23 @ 6:00 am

Location: COMLARA Park-Pheasant Run Area. See www.shtrs.org for map and directions.

Event Overview
This is going to be a fun one! 12 hour, elimination trail ultra. Here’s how it works. We will have a 4.25 mile loop marked out. The course will be a combination of single track, prairie paths, and horse trails. Runners must complete each 4.25 mile loop in under one hour, (14:07 pace). If you cross the finish line in 50 minutes, you will have 10 minutes to rest and refuel till the next loop begins, if you cross in 59 minutes, you will have one minute to rest and refuel. If you do not cross the finish line in under an hour you are eliminated. At the top of each hour a new loop begins. All runners must start each loop as a group. 12 starts 12 finishes. You must start with the group at the top of each hour or you are eliminated. One aid station at half way and one at the start/finish area-please take note of the aid station information on the registration site or at www.shtrs.org. Awards for top mileage female and male. Net proceeds donated.
