The first annual Chilly Hilly Half MARSathon was today, February 22. Turn out was good. Conditions were tough with slippery roads and a brutal headwind to go along with the brutal hills in the second half.
Winter continues on MARS but that has not stopped us.
The Hilly Chilly Half MARSathon is Sunday February 22, 2015. Bib pick up at 8:30 at Pierre’s house, race start 09:00 am. Details here. Runners can bring their own water bottles with their preferred in race nutrition and it will be taken to the turnaround point on Limberlost Rd.
It’s still winter on MARS and will be for a while. Despite this, 7 MARSians braved -30C and ran 32K with the last 3K at marathon race pace. There were frozen water bottles, frozen privates, bloody toes and one member of A Flock Of Seagulls. Come run with us to find out what that all means. The recovery shakes, sauna and hot tub make it all worthwhile.
