With my first ever 50 mile trail race looming, I wanted to do a really long training run so I thought why not do it with friends! So I came up with the Mr. Toads 12 Hour Challenge in the tradition of my New Year's Day Killa Hilla Classic. At the Leona Divide 50 Miler, I have to finish in under 13 hours so I wanted to simulate race conditions as best I could.
Originally I planned to do laps of the MR. Toads 20k but realized I did not want to run such a long loop (lonely and van / aid station 12.4 miles away) so on Thursday I decided to come up with a shorter loop. The loop I made ended up being a tad over three miles and was mostly on trails instead of the fire roads above Hart Park.
So far the rest of the race I did it by going up Toads. I believe I did four or five laps going down Toads.The reason I think the up Toads way is easier and faster is that you get the climbing over in one mile. It is a 300 foot climb up Toads and then basically downhill back to Hart Park.
If you liked my Killa Hilla Classic, here is another event just like it! The rules are simple:
The race begins at 7am and ends at 7pm. The winner is the person who does the most laps of the Mr. Toad's 3 mile course. Only complete laps count btw.
There is no entry fee, t-shirt or awards. No official aid stations either. So this is a BYOB & BYOF event.
Of course, if someone wanted to bring food and drink to share that would be great.
Like the Killa Hilla Classic, you can come out and do as many laps as you want as long as they are between 7am and 7pm.
So come out and do at least one!
