The Alphabet Soup 7 hour and 7k race is a loop course on the Greensprings Interpretive Trail in Williamsburg, VA. The loop is flat, crushed gravel- 2.22 miles. Runners will have 7 hours to complete as many loops as they can. 14 laps will equal a 50k, 12 laps a marathon and 6 laps a half marathon. Participants will receive an award and T-shirt from a previous Happy Cat Event- this is a leftovers race! There is also a 2 lap “fun run” that distance is 7k.
The race is self supported, so no food or drink will be provided. The course will be marked and easy to follow. There will be an area to set up tents and coolers. Plan for it to be hot, very hot! I will have some ice water but I will heckle you if you rely on my water!
This race will not have any race specific awards or T-shirts. This is a “leftovers” race and all finisher medals and T-shirts will be FROM PREVIOUS RACES and awarded randomly!
