Triangle, Virginia (United States of America) - "Red Eye 50km". The course consists of three repeats of a 10-mile loop in Prince William Forest Park, with a short loop at the beginning of the first loop to make it 50km, more or less. If you don't like the recommended course, just run anywhere you want to - this is not a real event. We will not generally hang a lot of streamers, but hope to mark the important turns. The trails are well-blazed. Important Note: Any markings will be taken down by the third loop. So pay attention and learn the course on the first two loops! This is not a real race, no trophies, no T-Shirts, no race entry fees, just the opportunity to run forest trails with your friends. Results will not be posted. Runners should be sure to check in before the race with race director Dave. Check in again after each loop, and, very important note, let Dave know when you have finished, should you bail prior to finishing the full 50k. We will have the one unmanned aid station at the start/finish. We may provide water and some energy replacement drink. In keeping with the Team Slug tradition of this run, we ask that the runners contribute to the aid station, which usually then evolves into a small feast. Please don't bring too much food. Bring enough for you and a couple of inconsiderate participants who bring nothing. Don't bring something for everyone. We generally have had to throw a lot of food away in previous years. There will be no mid-loop aid, but each loop will go through the Turkey Run area after roughly 7 miles, where there is a bathroom. You can get water there. We will not have drinking cups. Bring a water bottle to pour fluids in or just drink out of the container. This event was established before the invention of the Camelbak. www.vhtrc.org/news/redeye
