On August 22 we will have the second annual Medoc Meltdown 50k and Fun Run.
The Meltdown is what is know an a "Fat Ass" run . . . no fee to enter, no official timing, no support. Just some great people coming out for a run! The only "non Fat Ass" thing is that we do print special race t-shirts for any who want them . . . $10.
The run is held at Medoc Mountain State Park in Hollister, NC . . . about 30 minutes north of Rocky Mount. While the park officially opens at 8 am, we believe the park will open early for us, so we plan to start at 7:30 am or so.
The course will follow the Medoc Trail Marathon course . . . 8.7+ miles per loop. 3 loops is a marathon. 4 will be just under 35 miles. Run / walk as much or as little as you choose! The course is a figure 8, so you pass home base (Picnic Shelter) at about 3.5 miles and then 5.2 miles later at the end of the loop. Medoc Trail Races web site has information about the park and the trails. ( http://www.medoctrailmarathon.com/ ) The Park does have excellent camping and showers close to where we start.
Everyone is welcome. Come run. Come walk. Go as far as you like or as short (minimum is a 3.5 mile first loop). Just bring your own coolers, gels, snacks, etc.
All I ask is that you let me know your coming by sending me an e-mail ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Also let me know if you want a shirt and your size.
Pictures are from last year's race and this last one shows last year's shirt (what a handsome model!!). This year's shirt is already designed and I promise will be VERY cool (as in neat looking!)!
