Race Director's NotesMessage from Mike

5/16/11 - Had great success at Atlanta race with our Bucket Brigade so you can expect that on course.  5 gallon buckets filled with dirt are heavier than they look, especially when climbing up and down the mountain.  We've already place the order for some crushed stone instead of dirt.  Why?  Because we can.

A few new ideas in the works, such as the chariots of fire.  We'll let your imagination think about what that could include.  Bringing in 60 yards of extra dirt just to make our barbed wire crawl extra muddy.

Soul-demolishing hills lay in wait at the Tuxedo Ridge Ski Center.  Speed is going to have to be balanced against endurance with these elevation changes and gradients.  Won't be surprised to see more than a few lead packers sucking wind and clenching sides at the side of the trail.   This course screams GUTS and INSANE.  Try and crush it and it will crush you if you don't have what it takes.

For the elevation is just the start of your problems.   Can't figure out what we like most:  the 40-yard uphill barbed wire crawl or the 100 yard up and downhill tire carry.  Knees will buckle beneath many.

Beautiful natural features of the area integrate with the course, such as sections composed entirely of boulders (aka ankle-eaters) that will keep you off-camber as you transverse along the contour line of the mountain.
