Clinton Lake Ultra: 2014 Version
Bob and Mike took over as race directors from 2011-2013. They had a good three years as directors. Now it's time for the third set of RDs--Don and Ellen take the reins for the 2014 version of the Clinton Lake Ultra on March 29, 2014. Good luck to them. They've dropped the 10-mile race that accompanied the event under Bob and Mike's time as RDs. Personally, I like that decision. No need to water-down the ultra experience by adding a 10-mile run. There are plenty of shorter races that people can do...leave the ultras to the ultra crowd.
Here is the Second Wind Running Club information page for the 2014 Clinton Lake Ultra (race date = March 29, 2014). Check it out and register for the race if you want to challenge yourself at a small-town, home-spun, 30-mile trail ultra in central Illinois! You won't regret it. It's a great first-time ultra and a wonderful 93rd ultra/marathon (for me). Hope to see you on the trails around the north fork of Clinton Lake in late March.
