    3+ Hour Marathon Race in Iowa - The Mullet Fall Classic!

    I would like to invite all racers who are looking for a fall event to come on out to Lake Ahquabi State Park in Iowa for the The Mullet Fall Classic. This year is our 4th version of the event, and 2nd year of adding the Marathon Category.

    2 weeks from today, on October 9th, The Mullet Fall Classic features a marathon race category with cash prizes to the top 3 men and top 3 women solo finishers. We have sponsorship money for prizes in addition to cash from entry fees.

    Marathon Junkies will take off at 11:45 a.m. and when the clock hits 3 p.m. - no more laps will be started, but any lap that begins by 3 p.m. counts. The course is super fast and winning times should be able to do about 40-46 miles. 5 laps (40 miles) last year were done in 2:42, 2:53, 2:58, 3:08, 3:09, etc... when the race was a set number of laps. This year, no set number. It's as many as you can fit into the time allotment.

    Full details in the Great Plains forum as well are available here.

    Online registration is now available and all registrants who take advantage of online registration receive a discount on the entry fee.

    Online Registration Reminder...

    Just a reminder that the discounted online registration entry fee ends tomorrow night at 9 p.m. (Saturday, October 8th). Not to worry, day of race registration will be available at the Beach Shelter of Lake Ahquabi State Park on Sunday, October 9th from 9:30 a.m - 11:15 a.m. .

    The weather forecast is for a clear, sunny and 80 degree temperature for race day. The fall colors are in full bloom making the trip alone worth it to see the vivid colors. The trail is in excellent shape and riding very fast at the moment.

    If you are still looking for a 3+ hour endurance race for this weekend - this is it. Cash for top 3 men and top 3 women. Tandem category as well.

    Did I mention the big post race party featuring a beer garden, grilled burgers, dogs, salads, chips, desserts, prizes, awards and fun?

    Guaranteed prize money of $1800 to split between the winners of the various divisions (Marathon and XC). But it's starting to look like it might be more like $2500.
