VA IS FOR DINOSAURS 27 miler - Apr 5 - First Landing State Park, VA

WELCOME to another cheap ultra!
It's Virginia Beach, VA at sunrise!

The run is a FAT BUTT, fun run style event with a bonus of a memorable cotton tee!! It's an awesome shirt with a DINOSAUR on it...can't go wrong there!! Bring your own food, water, map, etc.
We will hit part of every trail at FIRST LANDING STATE PARK and then jump into the cold waters afterward for a post-race baptism of anti-inflammatory saltiness.

$14 by FEB 28 for race shirt with the coolest logo of the year
$24 by MAR 7. Shirts get ordered MAR 8, so no special sizes or quantities are guaranteed thereafter.

LIMIT: 40 runners
START: 5:30am
CUTOFF: 11:30pm for a write-your-time-on-the-clipboard finish, otherwise NO CUTOFF...just email your after 6 hour results!
TO register: VISIT
All runners agree not to hold anyone responsible for injury, illness, effects of weather, unfortunate shirt size, etc.

PARK behind HOT TUNA at 2817 Shore Dr, VA Beach, VA to connect to the bike path heading left leading into FIRST LANDING STATE PARK.

A crazy, all over the place, occasional dune-climbing, spanish moss, marshy seaside trail course! This could be your fastest ultra! It is 27.3 miles (likely more, since the source underestimates by a mile or so).
