Description: The MUTT Team Trail Race Series - MUTT team trail races are NOT relay races but rather team trail races that require 4 team members to start and stay together at the beginning of the race, and one by one turn around at the halfway point of each individual distance. The format allows for different distance runners to race together, and also assures each runner contributes to the success of the team. Pace strategy is critical in assuring the best team time. The Mighty MUTT is the longest of the 3 MUTT trail races scheduled for 2016. The Mighty MUTT Race - Each team will consist on a 25, 50, 75, and 100 mile runner. At the start of the race, each team will start out running together and MUST stay together until they reach the 12.5 mile mark, then the 25 mile runner will turn around and return to the start/finish line completing the 25 mile run, while the remaining three runners continue on. At the 25 mile mark, the 50 mile runner will turn around and head back to the start/finish line, with the remaining two continuing on. At mile 37.5, the 75 mile runner will return and so on. Once all 4 runners return to the finish line completing their individual distances, all four times are tabulated for the total team time. Race Course - The Mighty MUTT starts in Petoskey MI and follows the North Country trail. The 100 mile runner will travel the entire out and back course from Petoskey to the Mighty Mackinaw Bridge and back to Petoskey completing the total 100 mile course. The turnaround point for the 100 mile runner under the Mackinaw Bridge at night should be breathtaking! There will be a total of 4 “on-course” aid stations at each turn around point. Drop bag service at each turnaround will be available. Awards - All teams are automatically entered in the “Best in Show” (top team award) and “Best in Breed” (Top individual time) open division. This means that teams and individual times will not handicapped for the top spot in the race. Once the top team and individual distance awards are given, all remaining teams and individuals will be handicapped based on the following to determine the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in both team and individual categories: Women plus age handicap - 10% Age 10 and under - 10% Age 11 to 15 - 5% Age 16 to 39 - 0% Age 40 to 49 (for each year over 39) - 1% Age 50 to 64 (for each year over 49) - 10% + 1.5% per yr
