The 5th Annual
Bona Dea 50K
Saturday, November 15, 2014
Part of the 2014 - 2015 AURA Ultra Trail Series
Ultrarunning made an appearance in the Arkansas River Valley back in the early 1980's with the Arkie 50 (miler), conducted on the Bona Dea Trails in Russellville. Over 25 years later, ultrarunners returned for the first Bona Dea 50K, in 2010. With the flat course and cool weather, many PRs were set over the multi-lap course on hard surface trail. (2010 Results) Put it on your calendar for 2013 and come see what you're made of!!
Take Exit 81 off I-40 in Russellville. West-bound traffic will have to turn left on Aspen Ln, then take an immediate left onto Arkansas Ave (AR Hwy 7). East-bound traffic will exit onto Arkansas Ave, and should turn right. Once on Arkansas Ave, drive south and take the first right turn onto Dyke Rd/Lake Front Dr. Continue west on Dyke Rd/Lake Front Dr until reaching the Bona Dea Trailhead parking lot.
The race will utilize a 3.4 mile loop on paved trail: nine complete loops, then a short out and back at the end. An aid station will be available at the completion of each loop. If you have a drop bag for special supplies, it can be left at the aid station. Times will be captured on each lap.
There will be no entry fee or advanced registration this year, but if you will let Tom or Stan know if you plan to attend it will help in knowing how many runners to plan for.
