Its that time of year again folks ! The time of year where I borrow a computer to let you all in on the info and dirty little secrets of the OG of South Eastern NC 50ks. The Gator Trail 50k. This will be the 12th or so year depending on how you look at the history of this race (Bill Wm M Keane, can explain)
but here is the info as follows:
It is again this year, 6 loops of a flat, 5.2 miles loop in the Lake Waccamaw State park, 30 minutes west of Wilmington, NC off of HWY 74/76. Easy, non-technical trail with minimal roots. A great first 50k if you are new to the distance or just want to PR and break course records and sh*t. Also, some of my 100 mile friends like to "train" - well this is good for that too - a nice tune up before GY100 and Umstead 100, two other sweet gems right here in North Cackalacky.
Registration is on UltraSignup this year much to my chagrin but if I can find a way to hide all of the runners names from you so that you can't know who you are competing against, more the better !!!
Registration will open tonight, Friday October 9th at midnight and the link to register is this: (we hope, fingers crossed) - REGISTRATION IS $45 and includes shirt, medal, food and my wonderful company! You young Whippersnappers can't shake a stick at that !
OR you can snail me registration - message me and I will happily send you the registration/waiver form.
