Hello, I was just inquiring about more information on this race. Will there be a map available to get an idea of the run, elevation and location of aid stations?

Nick Showalter June 9, 2014 at 7:05 am

What I really wanted to know is if it would be a multi-loop course, or if it would be out and back? And if so how many loops, I looked at the map for lowes creek and see many trails interlinking.

Hi Nick, The Fall Back Blast will be a lap course, approximately three laps to complete the 50K distance. The course itself will be a mix of singletrack and double track with aid stations on each side of the park. Lowes Creek has several short, punchy climbs which will be included but nothing long or sustained.

Do you have many signed up for the 50k? I assume hydration is on us throughout the race? Does the 3 loops always return back to the start so we can have our personal stations set up? Thank you. Hopefully there is a good turnout.

Once registered is it possible to change events?

Miranda July 29, 2014 at 7:50 pm

Anyone know of a nice bike route from the east hill to Lowes creek county park?

jaylauraplummer July 30, 2014 at 7:43 pm

If you need to change events please send an email to chippewaoffroad@hotmail.com…. Are you thinking you want to run longer? :)

jaylauraplummer July 30, 2014 at 7:45 pm

We have about 20 signed up for the 50K so far but it’s early yet! We will have two water stations, one on each side of the park and yes the course will loop back past the start area for those who want to set up their own stash of food or hydration. Thanks for signing up!

Depending upon your start location, I suggest heading South on Keith street so you can use the underpass at Clairemont Ave. From there you can make your way to Rudolph and then Golf Rd. Follow Golf to S. Lowes Creek Rd to the park.

you guys should throw in a 50 mile option, it would be a great way to end the season!
