The 318 Last Man Standing is a different type of event with a new “race” strategy.
The first race starts at 8:00 a.m. Sharp! - run, jog, walk, hike the 3 mile trail loop. The object is to get back in the allotted time so that you can go again, again, & again until you are the “Last Man Standing”
Here is how it works:For the first loop you will have 45 minutes to complete the 3 mile loop. If you finish in 30 minutes you will have 15 minutes to rest and prepare for the next loop...if you finish the first loop in 44 minutes you will only have 1 minute to get ready for the next loop. After the first loop we will continue to drop the allotted finishing time by 1 - 2 minutes until we get down to 25 minutes to complete the loop.
(see attached chart for loop time limits, pace, distance)
Each loop we will run you in a different direction, just to keep you on your toes and make things interesting. Throughout the race we will throw in what we call “prime loops”. We will not announce that it is a “prime loop” until right before the start of the next loop. For the “prime loops” the first male and female back will get a sweet gift from one of our awesome sponsors, it could be a pair of shoes, gift certificate to a nice restaurant, a pair of socks, or a totally goofy gift. This is where the strategy comes in to play. Do you bust ass and try and win the prime and risk getting too tired to continue on or do you keep an easy pace and try and outlast everyone else? ***you can only win one prime loop***
For those that just want to come out and just enjoy a nice 3 mile run through the woods and then hang out and watch to see who outlasts who, we will also be offering a 3 mile Fun Run.
Bits and Pieces about the race:
The race takes place on a non-technical trail inside lake Bistineau State Park
No Pacers—No exceptions!
No dogs or baby joggers allowed on the course
If you plan on listening to music while running you must wear headphones. No playing music on a phone or other device to where others can hear your music. No Headphones...No Music. If you decide to run with music and no headphones you will be disqualified from the race.
Bring a headlamp just in case you make it to the evening portion.
We will let you know a couple minutes before the next loop starts, to give you time to get to the start line.
You can set up a tent, or cover near the finish line to have chairs, change of clothes, goodies, etc. Bring your team and have a cookout—it’s all good!
You are on your own as far as water or nutrition needed for the race. So bring an ice chest, handheld, whatever you think you might need to help get you through the race.
At noon if we have anyone left we will start making PB & J sandwiches, if we have anyone left at dinner we might grill some burgers and hot dogs or order pizzas!
