Endless-Summer Trail Run Description – Lebanon Hills 10KM:
The course will consist of a fun and very runable 10KM course consisting of two loops around Jensen Lake with an aid station(and some mad cheering) after your first loop around the 5KM mark.
Registration will be hosted externally via UltraSignup – complete registration details along with links to register for each race in the series can be found HERE – http://www.endlesssummertrailrunseries.com/online-registration/
Race-Number Pickup & Race Day Registration:
You can pickup your number or register on race day starting at 5:00 PM. Race-day registration closes at 6:00 PM or once the field limit has been met.
Race Numbers & Timing Chips:
You must wear your race number and it must be clearly visible on the front of your body at all times. Your timing chip will be affixed to the back of your race number. Do not remove your timing chip. Do not bend or fold your timing chip or crumple your race number – this may break your timing chip. Your race number and your timing chip must be pinned on your outer-most layer at all times. Above guidelines must be followed in order ensure that split times and finish times are recorded. This chip is disposable and does not need to be returned. More info HERE
The course will be marked with orange flags, which will always be on the left hand side of the trail except in areas with two way traffic, in which case flags will be on both sides of the trail.
It is unfortunate but is not unheard of at many of the major trail races that course vandalism has occurred and flagging has been intentionally moved or removed by small minded individuals – it is important that you study the course maps prior to running and have a concept of where you are going.
There will not be an aid station for 5KM (3.1 mile) or shorter races, if you feel you will need water during the run please carry a water bottle. For races over 5KM there will be an aid station approximately 1/2 way through the course with water, Hammer Heed and Coke.
Due to our past experience with people wearing headphones on trail runs such as these, we discourage their use however we won’t tell you can’t wear them . Full awareness of one’s surroundings, and the ability to communicate with other participants, race volunteers, and trail users unassociated with the event are critical to everyone’s safety. Please use common sense.
Don’t do it. If you see some trash someone else has dropped, pick it up and help keep the trail clean.
In order to keep this a low cost event, we don’t do t-shirts but all registered runners will receive something small, modest and super cool TBD – past years items include coffee mugs, beer “pint” glasses, stickers etc.
We will be serving Pizza, Pop and Beer after the race – please stick around and meet some new people – this is what this race is all about – enjoying summer to its fullest, meeting new people and COMMUNITY. Please note, that in order to have a beer after the race, you will need to show ID just as you would have to at a bar / restaurant, once you show your ID you will get a wrist-band… we prefer you have your ID when you pick up your race number but you can show it later as well.
Results will live-stream to the web as soon as you cross the finish line but are not considered FINAL until a day or so after the race in the event of a missed chip read or any other type of revision.
We are always looking for them – if you are interested, please contact us.
