Hobo 50K Coming Up!

The Rockford Road Runners are putting on their annual Rock Cut Hobo 50K trail ultra on Sunday, September 19.  It's the third race in the Illinois Trail Ultra Grand Slam.  If you want a tougher challenge than just the 50K, there is also a special "triple crown" race series that starts with a Friday night 10K, followed by a Saturday morning 25K, and concluding with the Sunday 50K.  All three races are on trails within Rock Cut State Park in Rockford, IL.  Looks like I won't be making the trip up to Rockford for any of these fine races, but I encourage you to check them out.  I'm still recovering from Howl at the Moon 8-Hour and just starting to ramp up again. I'll probably be ready for another ultra in October...hopefully the Farmdale 30 miler on October 9...maybe the McNotAgain 30 miler on October 30.  Hopefully both of these races.

Oh, by the way, the Hobo race has hot hobo stew (soup?) at the finish line too!
