The Country Mile – The Race That Brings You Back Home.
The Beechwood Family Farm has invited us to host one of the biggest Ultra Running Festivals in the state of South Carolina. We are proud to be introducing this event at Beachwood Farms. We have five races lined up: 48 Hours, 50k, 5k, & the Last Outlaw! All of these events will take place “down on the farm”.
The course is 95% packed dirt with a small section of rock/grass by the Sunflower patch. Finishers of 100 miles in the 48 Hour and Last Outlaw Riding will receive a Country Sized belt buckle!
THE LAST OUTLAW – Starts @ High Noon Friday:
- This is a 45 minute 5k timed cutoff race starting on Friday at HIGH NOON.
- “Outlaws” will have 45 minutes to complete the 5k loop.
- Every 45 minutes and thereafter Outlaws must report to the starting line no later than 1 minute after the cowbell.
- If the Outlaw fails to report to the starting line they are disqualified.
- If the Outlaw fails to complete the lap in under 45 minutes they are disqualified.
- The cowbell will ring and runners will complete 5k loops until only one outlaw remains.
- If no Outlaw manages one more lap than the others, then all athletes receive a DNF and there is no winner.
