Who's up for a challenge?
re·sil·ience /rəˈzilēəns/ noun 1. The capacity to withstand or to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
This is a 25hr endurance event. Why 25 and not 24? Because anyone can do 24 hours :) and as you will see, I like "milestone" numbers.
It will be a modified "backyard ultra" format on a 2mi course. You will start the 2mi at the top of every hour. When you have completed it, you have the remaining time in that hour to rest, refuel, use the facilities, etc. And off you go again at the top of the next hour. And the end of the event, everyone will have completed a nice, round number of 50 miles (2mi every hour X 25)!
The course will be 100% off road and with some small hills. It will be partially out-and-back...so lots of time for interaction with your fellow participants. It is absolutely possible to walk this entire event! You don't need to be fast, just resilient.
It is going to be very low key and and supported by a single aid station (aid station supplies TBD). The primary aid station tent will have a bonfire and music throughout the event. Registration is only $25! I will make zero profit from this event! All proceeds will go to the AAAA rated charity, The Gary Sinise Foundation. They are my favorite charity and are genuinely doing good things in this world for our severely disabled veterans! Check them out at the link below.
THIS IS OPEN TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE!
