A Stupid Hot Hilly Little Run in the Park

The RD says, "I guarantee suck ass conditions and a fun time." What more do you want?

No shirts - but some sort of memorable clothing to cover your lower bits. You may obtain a "medal". If you finish. Just 5 loops of a rolling 5.26 mile course. Here is a course map. Here is a course map.

Race entry $55 if sent before April 1 (Fool’s discount). $65 for the months of April and May. $75 after June 1, 2018. There is also a cap of 150 participants for the race. You will get tired of the same 149 faces suffering as you go through your five loops. Statistics also say that out of every 151 runners, one dies in Cane Creek School Parking lot every August 3.

Yes. The rock moves.

SUNday race, a hot time, fluids on the course (maybe), roughly 10% shaded course, a start/finish line you will pass by 10 times (hopefully). Enough of the great promises. We will be doing bibs again. Food will follow the race. I must say that the race is held 100% on city property, so alcohol consumption is illegal. Pay no attention to the man in pictures with the bottle. He must have picked that up from the roadside.

The race will take place Sunday, August 5, 2018 at 7am [NOTE CHANGE]. Cookeville, TN. Cane Creek Park. It will already be hot by then. And humid.

New this year: If you want an early start, you must show how much experience you have for this course and how much you enjoy being on this course. That means that you will need to have finished the race twice AND have an average finish time of five or more hours. IF you do not meet the criteria, you always can work to meet it in the future.

You wanna run this race, you are a fool. Also, you need to fill out THIS WAIVER.
