FORGE Racing is happy to announce a new partner for the 2014 EQUINOX
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.
