“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.” - Henry David Thoreau
"We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success." -

Welcome to the website for the 9th Annual "Hell Hath No Hurry" Trail Challenge. Keeping things very similar to the past 3 years, but going to add a relay to the 50 mile race. The exact course has not yet been laid out, but we're planning on a similar 10K loop with an aid station near the halfway point. Besides adding the relay, the race distances and start times are not changing. There is a small twist with the relay in that there will only be teams of 3, and all three team members will complete the last lap together. Given that there are 8 laps that means one member of the team will be doing an extra lap, but there should be enough time for teams to work out the logistics before race day. Please see the 2017 race page for more details. Entrant goodies will be socks again this year and we plan to have very similar if not the same finishers awards this year with the custom finishers plates going out several weeks after the event. We are planning to have well stocked aid stations and a post-race BBQ with Dogs, Burgers and Beers. Same as last year, if you volunteered the previous year, THANK YOU!, but email me to obtain free entry to this years race. Also, if you are the race director for another race, email me about obtaining free entry into this years race.
Finally, if you like this race and would like to help out, I'm looking for volunteers. I'm looking for nice people who want to help out with trail work before the race and on race day with the aid stations, parking, registration, etc... Please e-mail our volunteer coordinator directly at email@example.com if you are interested. It would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to everyone who has come out and either participated in or volunteered in this race. I hope that you consider coming out again this year and spending another day in the woods!
