Subject: Mahlon Mayhem – 25K, 50K, 75K 100K – Aug 14, NJ
I would like to announce a new race being put on by NJ Trail Series in Jefferson Township NJ on Saturday Aug 14, 2010.
The course designed by Nathan Echols will be a 12.5K loop and here is a quick description: Start the run on double wide trail (similar to an old fire road) for over 1/2 mile to thin the pack. Then it gets a little rocky
with a few wetter spots (NO stream crossings). It then alternates between single and double track until 3.8 miles. From there for the next 2.2 miles you are on a rail trail (aid station half way through the rail trail). You
then transition back to the alternating single and double track going over rolling hills up over the highest point in Morris County then back to the Start Finish. The trail down from the Highest Point is groomed quite nicely and very runnable. Overall no huge hills and very runnable.
Registration is open here.
Race starts at 6:00 am. No runner will start a loop after 6:00pm
The exact Location of the trail is the Mahlon Dickerson Reservation, a Morris County Park and it has RV, camping and Lean to’s.
I hope you can come out and enjoy the beautiful trails of Northern NJ.
