BM update...

17 nights until BAD MARSH! The shirts will be ordered this week, so even if you haven't signed up yet, shoot me a heads up email so I can include your size and style shirt. Keeping things positive, the race is half FULL! I'm so excited to run this race with all of you. The moon should be out and almost full, shedding some light and saving our batteries, hopefully. If all goes well, there will be ANOTHER NIGHT ULTRA in AUGUST...

BAD MARSH: Official Parking Area

177 Brickyard Point Rd SBeaufortSC 29907-1226

is the mapquest address for BAD MARSH. We can park about 40 cars in this area on the generous shoulder of the road.


No worries: this keeps you from driving another half mile to Marsh Drive, you'll see us on your way down brickyard point road.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS: FROM Downtown Beaufort, get on route 21, go over the bridge, take a left on Sams Point Road. Drie about 3.5 miles. When the road narrows to one lane, turn left onto Brickyard Point Dr South. Follow for about 1.5 miles until you see a bunch of crazy runners and their vehicles. (It'll be LIGHT outside for the start and first lap-you're welcome!)

Shirts have been designed!!! :) There are wicking shirts available in Men's sizes S-XL and lightweight cotton racerback tank tops in Women's sizes S-XL.     The course is looking great! I'll include as many hills as possible from the golf course.      I'm going to reduce the price to $30 until race week ( $27 for 4.5miler / 9miler).

With a month to go, we have about 20 runners.

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.
