Details from event's RunSignUp.com listing:
The 30th annual Not 4 Wimps trail run is ready & waiting for you. We will park, start and finish at the Warren Riverview Park. The only indoor facilities available will be the restrooms as the indoor facility is currently closed for maintenance & repairs. Capacity of this year's event is limited to 200 so please sign-up early. In an attempt to minimize start-line and course congestion, Participants will be encouraged to stagger their start time in 30 second intervals and simply note their start-delay time at the finish where it will be deducted from the "clock" time. There will be no chip timing, just a simple old-school time-clock and a roster to write-in your finish-time, distance, and start delay-time. Results will be tallied and posted on our Facebook page next day. Bottled water will be provided at multiple distances on the course beginning at 3 miles. Trash cans will be available immediately beyond the water stations for empty bottles as well as nutrition packaging etc. to help maintain clean trails. The course will be well marked for each distance with all 3 distances sharing the same basic course. We'll make sure the course is everything that you've come to expect, your job is to bring on the fun. . . and smile - even when it hurts!
"No Frills" Race
Bottled water will be provided post-event, but your on your own for food. Feel free to bring your own goodies to share at the fire-pit as you cheer your friends through the finish-line. Friends and family are welcome and encouraged to hang-out at the park - the Lodge balcony provides a great vantage point. River-conditions permitting, you'll enjoy the return of the legendary "sofa in the sand" for a spectacular photo-op commemorating how totally awesome you look after some challenging miles on the trails - images will be shared on our Facebook page for the entire world to see (and download) in the days following the run.
This is a timed course that is marked well, but it is still a trail course! If you don't see any course markings, you are going the wrong way! If you are not leading the pack and you come across a spider web, you may be going the wrong way! If you get lost and tack on some extra mileage, well then you got some extra bang for your buck! You're not going to get an age group medal, or a finishers medal, or a pretty shirt with this race. When you get done, we have some awesome giveaways to go along with the pride of knowing that you didn't wimp out and take the shortcut back. Feel free to also brag to your friends that you finished a challenging race in the middle of February, while everyone else is still in hibernation mode, or stuck on a treadmill wishing for some new scenery! This race is a bargain, and we want to keep it that way!
Packet pickup will start at 11:00 am the day of the race..
