Wild West Old Fart's 50 K and Relay Memorial Weekend...CANCELLED for May 25, 2020

SORRY BOYS...due to the Covid-19 virus we have to cancel the Wild West 50K, so there will be no Hoe Down or Show Down this year. If you already registered we will be sending you back your entry fee via Pony Express! Once again sorry for the inconvience but for the safety of our Older Aid Station Workers and runners we feel that this year's race is approaching to fast to determine whether or not it will be safe enough to hold. Due to the cancellation we will probably then will hold this race again next year. Stay tuned for details, thanks and keep safe- Old Farts Running Club.

Come on out and get all the challenges and accolades of the Old West right here in the Mid-West in the Wild West Old Fart's 50K Ultra Marathon. 

The Race is Held at Fallasburg Park just North of Lowell

If you are coming from the expressway I-96...get off exit 52 Lowell Exit and turn north, go approx. 7.4 miles to Fallasburg Park Dr. and turn right(its only a right turn)...go another .7 tenths of a mile and turn right onto Covered Bridge Road for .5 of a mile. The start and Finish will be on this road at Picnic area C-3.

 

This is a trail race and relay race...so come and join the fun. If you need a relay team to run on email Coach Dan and we can hook you up.

Relay Teams and Individual Runners must bring there own trail support, we will have one aid station about half way on the 10.3 mile loop and we will have an aid station at the start/finish line.

All relay teams will run in the same division and it does not matter how many team members that you have so long as you have at least 2 runners and max of 3 runners. Each team must complete 3 loops to finish for awards.

What to bring: if you are running the ultra... pack more than one pair of running shoes, bug spray, extra bandaids, towell, and a great attitude to have fun!!! Remember...it's not how many times that you fall down that counts...it's the number of times that you get up after you fall that counts!!! Always strive to get up one more time than the number of times that you fall.

Hey this is Michigan: you don't have to worry about any Grizzly Bears, Mountain Lions, or any other "CAN CAUSE YOU BODILY HARM" type of animals in our woods. Please don't give blood the week of the race...if your out in the woods and start walking in late May then the local mosquitoes will take enough from you.

One more thought....there has been some out of town people that are coming in from out of town...this is why we call them out of towners... Lowell does now have a tiny hotels called Main Street Inn...book early...other wise the nearest hotel is in Grand Rapids called the Country Inn and Suites located on the East Beltline and 1-96 expressway.  Please Email Coach Droski at coachdroski@aim.com if you have any questions.
