The 318 Last Man Standing is a different type of event with a new “race” strategy.
The first race starts at 8:00 a.m. Sharp! – run, jog, walk, hike the 3 mile trail loop. The object is to get back in the allotted time so that you can go again, again, & again until you are the “Last Man Standing”
Here is how it works: First race you will have 45 minutes to go 3 miles. Make it back in 20 minutes you have 25 minutes to recover before the next race starts, (see chart for approximate starting times) make it back in 44 minutes you only have 1 minute before the next race starts. Every third loop we drop the allotted finishing time by 5 minutes until we get down to 25 minutes.
Each loop we will run you in a different direction, just to keep you on your toes and make things interesting. Throughout the race we will throw in what we call “prime loops”. We will not announce that it is a “prime loop” until 2 minutes before the start of the next loop. For the “prime loops” the first male and female back will get a sweet gift from one of our awesome sponsors, it could be a pair of shoes, gift certificate to a nice restaurant or a pair of socks. This is where the strategy comes in to play. Do you bust ass and try and win the prime and risk getting too tired to continue on or do you keep an easy pace and try and outlast everyone else?
For those that just want to come out and just enjoy a nice 3 mile run through the woods and then hang out and watch to see who outlasts who, we will also be offering a 3 mile Fun Run.
