StumpJump 50K & 11 Mile Race Coming Up in October

It’s hard to believe with 100+ degree days here in Chattanooga, but Fall is right around the corner, and Fall means nothing less than the best ultramarathon in the Southeast, the StumpJump 50K (& 11 Mile) Trail Run. Now’s the time to sign up for the race, which will be held October 7, 2006.

We had a great race last year with about 250 runners, and we expect this to be the best year yet. We have a FREE Carbo Supper sponsored by Salomon, makers of high-quality trail running shoes, as well as a Vendor Fair where you can come check out the latest technology in trail running shoes, aparrel, and nifty toys like Suunto’s wristtop GPS units.
We just got word that Mountain Hardwear is stepping on as a major sponsor this year. We’re happy to hear it, and you should be too, because that means we’ll have the Mountain Hardwear Wicked Tee as our race shirts this year. The Wicked Tee, if you don’t already have a few, will change your expectations of a wicking synthetic tee. These things are great. (By the way, we also have a free Wicked Tee offer right now on the Web site, so if you want to go ahead and pick one up for your training, now’s the time).
