The 2018 Super Bull Trail Championships will come to you with the same format and outline, but with a few small changes-all in an effort to make it even better!
Race proceeds will once again benefit the Friends of Wooster Memorial Park as they keep the park up to date with trail maintenance, clean-up and land development. But we all know the most beneficial way to help out the trails-run them! And we have plenty of options for that-a 12.5k, 25k and 50k!
As the 2017 Super Bull sold out, we are increasing the cap by 50 people this year. The first 200 to sign up are in and this sold out in less than 3 months last year, so don't delay! We are giving away $900 in total prize money in 2018!!
The race will consist of 3 separately timed events-12.5k, 25k and 50k. Each race will start at different times. The 50k will start at 8am, the 25k will start at 8:15am and the 12.5k will start at 8:30am. **Note-There will be an 8 hour time limit for this event. If you have not started your final loop by 2pm, you will be asked to end your day, or you can continue on, un-aided and untimed**
This is a loop style course featuring a 7.75 mile loop with approximately 1000ft. of climb per loop. Click here for the course elevation (courtesy of Danny Preising) The course is mostly made up of single track trails with some very technical treks, but some awesome views! As seen in the pictures above, there are creek crossings, you'll encounter your fair share of steep hills, lots of downhill and probably some mud! That's what trail running is all about! Check out the course map HERE.
