Endorsed by Curators:
Challenge your body and your mind. Push your limits beyond what you think is possible. Even if you are not a big runner I encourage you to come out to this event. It is during this type of training/competition that you truly learn something about yourself. Your body will want to quit...your mind will tell you to quit...but you have to move all of that aside and develop the mental fortitude to keep pushing through...to keep forging ahead. I don't care how strong and how conditioned your legs are....there comes a point where it all becomes mental. You CAN do this. Join me. Join us.
Team Spartan will be running in the 12 hour adventure trail run in Prince William Forest Park. Be sure to sign up before Sept. 12.
The Park is 17,000+ acres and has over 40 miles of trails. The course will be on a DIFFERENT set of trails than our 24-Hour ATR. The course will be a 6.5 mile looped figure eight (8). It is designed to challenge the novice and experienced trail runners alike. It will be 100% trails, some single track, and some fire road. The approximate elevation gain/loss is 650 feet / per loop. The terrain will have undulating hills with some nice ascents and descents to keep trail runners on their game and keep them honest. There will be rocks; there will be roots, dirt, and mud if it rains. There will be two aid stations. The primary aid station will be the Start/Finish. It will have a plentiful array of sustenance (food) to cover everyone through out the event. The second aid station will ONLY have H2O. The 12-HR is concluded with the awards ceremony and Post-Race Meal for participants and crews.
See you all out there!
