The “Backyard BBQ 20K Trail Run Challenge” is not part of any Race Series. Race Course is rolling hills on the groomed trails of Fort Yargo State Park. The “Backyard BBQ 20K Trail Run Challenge” consist of four (4) separate 5K runs. Each runner will have 45 minutes (14 minute pace) to complete each 5K. At the end of each 45 minute segment the next 5K run will start. In other words if you finish a segment in 25 minutes you will have 20 minutes to recovery before the next segment starts. There will be ample verbal notice before each segment starts so you can position yourself at the starting line. Runners failing to finish a 5K segment within the 45 minutes will be posted as DNF (NO EXCEPTIONS). Segment start times are 8:00am. 8:45am, 9:30am, 10:15am. The “Challenge” of this event is to pace yourself through each 5K segment in order to be able to complete the 20K without bonking but at the same time keeping a competitive pace to be able to make the podium. A contest of speed versus stamina. In case Social Distancing is still in place on the date of the Race, there will be starting group’s pre-determined and members of those designated groups will stay with that group on each separate segment. BBQ dinner and refreshments will be served after the last 5K segment has finished and times are tallied for awards. This will be a chance for our running community to not only be challenged physically but to enjoy the camaraderie of friends and fellow runners.
