Spring Equinox Ultras & 10 Miler
THE FIRST ULTRA OF SPRING!
Brought to you by Brenton Day, Running Monk Brewing Co., and FORGE Racing.
Location/Course- Located in the heart of the Homochitto National Forest, in Meadville, MS lies the “Clear Springs Recreation Area” that boasts 30+ 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, ultra food, including CLIF 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.
