This is the first Annual Last Chance 50k trail event on the Swamp Fox leg of the Palmetto Trail! The Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012...which makes this your LAST CHANCE to run a 50k! This event starts and finishes at the Witherbee Ranger Station which is located in Cordesville, SC.
We will run an out and back course from this location to ensure the safety of the participants and to provide medical coverage. I will have three aid stations along the route. The first will be located at the start and finish line, the second at mile 7.5 (23 mile marker on the return) and at 15.56. Each station will be manned with volunteers and there will be a portable toilet for participant/spectator use. I will have water, gels, hammer heed and fruit at each location.
The aid stations are also the switch point for the relay participants. Each runner will be required to run at least 7.5 miles...unassisted! The #4 relay participant will have the timing chip/bib on. Please wear this on the front of your shirt!
2 person relay: Your relay buddy will head to the exchange point at mile 15.56 in your personal vehicle. Once there they will wait for you to arrive. The SECOND relay participant will have the timing chip/bib on. Please wear this on the front of your shirt!
Relay participants are responsible for getting to the two exchange points via their own vehicle.
The trail is a portion of the Swamp Fox Passage a leg of the Palmetto Trail. It is very well maintained and is mostly a (wide) single track trail.
