BAD MARSH is what's up!!!

Bad Marsh is a race you must do!!! Choose your distance, bring a headlamp and a water bottle, and a dose of trail running spirit. We are going to be parking at 139 Marsh Road, Beaufort. (Different from November's start location...thank goodness!) It's 4.5 miles per lap, and you can choose 1 to 7 laps. (4.5 miles, 9, half mar, 18, 22.5, mar, 31.5-mile ultra) 

The start is at 7:00 pm on Friday, May 13th, with the cutoff at 3am. The one aid station with have food, water, gatorade, etc. and will stay lit up. It's gonna be laid back, but extremely fun and adventurous. Bring friends; bring a crew. The course will be marked with orange ribbons and flags. It'll be light for the first lap or two, then the real fun begins!!!

It's $25 if you signup early enough. A no-shirt option is available. The race is sponsored by the brand new Palmetto Running Co. and will have a shirt choice of a cotton tee or racerback tank. Proceeds will benefit me as I travel overseas to teach English for a few weeks this summer. The results from the ultra will go into Ultrarunning Magazine. There will be no more than 100 runners. 

The course is packed dirt on an old golf course, with a few manmade hills thrown in for kicks. No roots or rocks. A couple of road crossings.
