Location/Course- Located in the heart of the Homochitto National Forest, in Meadville, MS lies the “Clear Springs Recreation Area” that boasts 50 miles of beautiful rolling singlrtrack trails. The rolling hills range from slow an long, to shorter steep climbs. The typical surface for the area is hard packed dirt, soft dirt, a few low lying damp areas, roots, and some great bridges. You will be running along ridges with beautiful views of valleys filled with pine and hardwood trees.
Aid Stations- There will be a number of “manned” and “unmanned” aid stations on the course with fluids (water, soft drinks, and Heed), ultra food, including HAMMER products.
Drop Bags- Drop bags are fine, but they need to be dropped off THE NIGHT BEFORE THE RACE WITH THE RACE DIRECTORS. YOUR NAME MUST BE PLAINLY LOCATED ON YOUR BAG.
Cut Off Times- Both the 50 miler & the 50k have a 13 hour cut off time. BUT if the last 50 miler is beating the 50k er, the 50 kers will be pulled.
Camping- I have reserved a group camp site for us for Friday night the 21st and saturday night the 22nd. The cost is $10 a tent. Just let me know. You can pay when you arrive. There ARE RV sites in the group area as well.
