Oak Grove FREE Marathon (& 1/2)

Join us on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at Oak Grove Lake Park at 5:30am for a bunch of laps around the beautiful lake!     This will be a super, low-key, laid back event, but there's no reason not to race!!! Make room for turkey week with SEVENTEEN laps around the 1.542 mile lake loop. The course is FLAT and very fine gravel/dirt. The grand total: 26.2 miles (likely a tad more on your app...if less on your device, continue on for a few steps to satisfy that nagging in that stubborn marathon-running brain we are all familiar with). DISTANCE SPLITS for nerds (approx): 1.542, 3.08, 4.6, 6.168, 7.7, 9.25, 10.79, 12.3, 13.8*, 15.4, 16.96, 18.5, 20, 21.58, 23.1, 24.67, 26.214*)

Many can use this as a long run for Seashore Nature Trail 50k in December, one of the largest 31-mile races in the US.
Half marathoners or twenty milerers are welcome!

Finishers for the FULL will write their names and times down at the end on the provided poster for historical (or hysterical) results.

Shoot for 6 hours or less.

Run in either direction..or swtch it up! (Optional small hill parallel to trail at 0.75 mile marker...I'm running it 17 times!! )

50 runners or less, please. We can't storm the others out of the park!

I highly recommend a SHARPIE to keep tallies on your hand of your laps...this has proven to free up epic numbers of brain cells to focus on splits, nutrition, and nature!
It really is a beautiful park. I'm not one for zillions of laps, but I can manage at ths park! there are POTTIES and tables and a shelter. Bring all your snacks and liquids!
