RD Event Discription:
Cruel Jewel 50 is a point to point 56 mile trail race deep with in the beautiful Chattahoochee National Forest of the North Georgia Mountains. It consists of 50 miles of trails, 6 miles of mountain roads, and has 10 aid stations. Along your journey from Blue Ridge to Vogel State Park you will experience tough, and sometimes technical, single track trails, ferns and old growth poplar trees, steep ascents and even steeper descents, an historic steel bridge spanning the Toccoa River, the Dragon's Spine, lush green hardwood forests, rocks, roots and ridge lines ... all of which will be passed before you reach your final destination. And as a bonus we have thrown in over 17,000 feet of gain and 17,000 feet of loss just to keep you smiling !!
The Lake Martin 100
The 2018 Lake Martin 100 will be held March 17th & 18th at Russell Crossroads on Lake Martin, one of America's most beautiful lakes. The run will be entirely on the private lands of the Russell Forest Trail System near Alexander City, in East-Central Alabama. This race will be the perfect "First" 100 or 50 mile trail race. Race planning is easy with four 25 mile loops on rolling hills and very runnable trails. 100% of the course is on trails, carriage paths and gravel roads, most of which do not allow cars. Approximately 80% of the run is on single track trails. Several miles of each loop are along the shores of the Lake Martin and creeks flowing into the lake. While the Lake Martin races are all excellent first ultras, it is not an easy course. The 100 will have almost 14,000 feet of elevation gain. The hills may be small but they never stop. Be prepared!
The Aid Stations: Standard aid station food and Tailwind will be available at both aid stations all day. We will add sandwiches, hot soup and quesadillas in the afternoon. An assortment of hot food, coffee, hot chocolate and chicken and pasta soup will be available at the Cabin and Heaven Hill Aid Stations starting about dark and continuing all night. The Cabin will add Santa Fe Soup and a Grits Bar with bacon, eggs and waffles during the early morning hours. The grits bar will remain open with fresh, hot food until the last finisher crosses the finish line.
All one hundred mile finishers will receive hand crafted, custom belt buckles. Fifty and twenty seven mile finishers will earn custom finisher medals. Place awards will be given out at runners finish their perspective races.
The Lake Martin 100 is destined to become the standard for first 100s and first 50s.
