Description

RUN UNDER THE STARS™  3/6/12 HOUR OPTIONS


July 1,  2023 - Corydon, IN  7PM START (all times EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME)


Location: Harrison County, IN Fairgrounds, Corydon, IN


1/2 mile lighted oval consisting of a dirt track covered with finely crushed limestone. This is a horse track that is used to pull those little buggies.


These are night time runs. Run, jog, walk, rest, stop and start as much as you'd like.
The objective is to see how far you can go.  However, you can stop at any time if you've reached your goal or if you've had enough. 


HIGHLIGHTS:
CHIP TIMING SYSTEM will keep your distance recorded. We will display your distance continually at the timing tent. Check the monitor as you run by.
No traffic, no hills, no roots, no hard running surface.
NO HOT SUN BEATING DOWN ON YOU.


LARGE AID STATION on the track. SWORD (www.drinksword.com) is the official hydration drink of R.U.T.S.  We have a fully stocked station, containing the normal snacks, and fruit including watermelon, cantaloupe, and bananas, plus salty items such as peanut butter pretzels, and chips. Soda, ginger ale, and coffee are available. Ice pops when it's really hot. PB&J sandwiches are a staple. We order Pizza at 10pm, bring out Grilled Cheese sandwiches around midnight, and then around 1 or 2 am, chocolate chip pancakes and bacon. Lots of bacon. 


Bring your own fluids containers. We try hard to not use any cups. You can leave your container at your course-side table, or at your table at the aid station.


AMENITIES and AWARDS: Each runner will receive a shirt, cap, drawstring bag, and a custom medal that will indicate your mileage.


The top m/f individuals in each category (3hr/6hr/12hr) receive a special award. The number of awards will be a % of the amount of runners in each category.


100 mile buckles for those running 100 or more accumulative miles for the three RUTS Series races. (Oak Ridge, Paducah, Corydon).


REASONS FOR RUNNING RUTS:  Great training venue for practice at running at night... calibrate your nighttime nutrition needs, get used to be up all night for that upcoming 100 miler (Tunnel Hill) or 24 hour venue. Perfect social running event with serious results. You can feel safe due to all the runners around you. Unlike marathons, and non-loop events, you see your friends the entire time, giving you opportunities to run or walk with some runners you'd never get to run with.
This could possibly be the course you'll set a personal best for whatever distance you run. Knowing that your vehicle is close by, you have the confidence to keep going.
On Site Parking, either in the huge parking lot, or right on the grass infield. No hotel needed. 


SET UP: Beginning any time after noon on Saturday July 1, you can set up a tent under the large shade trees in the grass infield, or alongside the course. There is plenty of room. This is a good one to bring the family to. You can stop and see them as much as you like. Encourage them to run or walk a few laps with you. They love it, and so do we. We only ask that you carry your trash out with you if at all possible. 


DOGS: We love dogs, however they are NOT allowed on the course as part of the race. IF you bring your dog, you will need to keep them on a leash, and out of the way of other runners, or guests.
