Misery on the Mound is an Elimination style race that is run at the Johnson’s Mound Forest Preserve in Elburn IL. Athletes will have 40 minutes to complete a 2.45 mile course that includes paved road, dirt road open prairie and a 200ft hill that rises over the rolling preserve around it. There are 3 different options for participants of this race.
The 2 hour option has you completing 3 loops (8:00am, 8:40am, 9:20am) for a total of 7.35 miles and over 600ft of elevation gain on the mound.
The 4 hour option has you completing 6 loops (8:00am, 8:40am, 9:20am, 10:00am, 10:40am, 11:20am) for a total of 14.70 miles and 1200ft of elevation gain on the mound.
The 6 hour option has you completing 9 loops (8:00am, 8:40am, 9:20am, 10:00am, 10:40am, 11:20am, 12:00pm, 12:40pm, 1:20pm) for a total of 22.05 miles and 1800ft of elevation gain on the mound.
With the race starting at 8:00am sharp, any participant not at the start line when the next loop begins will be considered eliminated.
For additional fun there will be timing mats at the base and top of the hill. Awards will be provided based on completion times on the climb. Not all awards will be based on fastest times to provide opportunity for all runners to possibly win a prize.
