Location: Whiskeytown National Recreation Area
Oak Bottom Beach,

Details:
Can you manage a 15 minute per mile pace on relatively benign trails? Of course you can! Most of you could do sub-10min/mile, many could do TWO miles in 15 minutes. And in this race, that’s all you have to do! 15 minutes per mile. 4 MPH. A fairly easy (one medium size hill) 6-mile point-to-point course from Oak Bottom to the historic Tower District (near the Camden House). 2.5 miles of lakeshore running and some great views at both ends of the course. Mostly single track with a half-mile section of road in the middle. Any time under 90 minutes counts as success! When you finish, you can sit down, eat and drink, visit with other runners, whatever. When the 90 minutes are up, head back the same way to Oak Bottom. Once again you have exactly 90 minutes to finish. And then… You Get To Do It Again! The first time that you fail to finish a 6 mile leg in 90 minutes, “Yerrrrr Outttt!” And if you do make it, congratulations, you’re tied for first place!
