Pre-Blast: Harbison 50K

When: 08/23/16

QIC: Crab Daddy

PAX (): All of F3 Nation

Do you like to run? Want to do a #CSAUP that’s not a ruck or mud run? Have you wanted to complete a trail ultramarathon? Here is your chance to race one of the southeast’s most popular early season 50K races! Time to put all that F3 work into action!

Since the trail running and 50K/Ultramarathon racing bug has bitten a large majority of F3 Columbia, YHC wanted to offer all Pax of F3 Nation a discount into one of my favorite races to direct. The Harbison 50K in the Harbsion State Forest right here within the city limits of Columbia, SC. Why not tackle a distance like this right in your back yard!

Race Date: January 7, 2017
Start time: 7:30 am
Distance: Just a tad shy of 32 miles
Course: 2 loops, so you can enjoy Spiderwoman twice!
Map: Click Here
Weather: The last couple years has been down right cold and wet… great for getting muddy!
Technical aspect: Mild to Moderate, moderate to hard if trail conditions deteriorate due to weather.
Toughest Section: Everyone says Spiderwoman but I love the Spiderwoman trails, Personally YHC thinks the toughest section is Midlands Mountain/Firebreak to the main parking lot section near the end of the loop due to the lack of terrain change.
Total Elevation Change: 4,186′
Cut off time: A loose 9 hours
Race swag: A race logo’d shirt and a sweet finisher’s award that you can wear proudly everywhere you go, bragging about your accomplishment.
Discount: 25% off registration fees
Discount Code: F3Nation

My contact info:

Registration/More info: Ultrasignup

If you decide to join the race, feel free to let me know your F3 name and I’ll be sure to have that custom printed on your race bib instead of your hospital name.

If you’re travelling to Columbia and don’t want to stay on top of a fellow Pax, I have discounted rooms available at the Harbison Hampton Inn which is 5 minutes from the race site. If you need to use this, shoot me an email at the address above!

See all there!
