| 4-5 Stone Cat Marathon and 50 Mile Trail Racess
This is my all-time favorite race. I missed two years to see my sons play high school football, and was glad to be back. GAC, the club that puts on the race has created a unique running environment. If you've ever considered a trail marathon or 50-miler, consider this one.
Young, fast, old, slow, ultra-runners and marathon runners cheer each other on and enjoy each other's success. The amenities are better than they are fancy, and there's lots of food to go around. The shirts are high quality and don't make me feel like a billboard. The course is totally runnable and there are no heroic climbs.
