Feeling lucky? Come out and have some shamrock-ing fun on the Poto!
This is an unsupported, unmarked, free, fat ass style 50k-ish trail run with the start and finish at Silver Lake in Pinckney Recreation Area.
Course: See trail map in comments below. Follow the gold dust, leprechaun footprints or the rainbow if you see them but there will be no official course markings.
The Official non-official course will be the 14+ and 17+ mile loops of the Pinckney-Potowatomi Trail.
Be a "Complete Ass" and run the 17+ mile loop and then the 14+ mile loop for the ultra distance, or just be "Half Assed" and run the 14+ mile loop twice for the marathon distance.
Aid stations: Umm... "unsupported" means BYOA (Bring Your Own Aid). If interested bring something yummy that we can set out on a picnic table or hood of car or tailgate of truck to munch on after loops or at finish.
Awards: First to the pot of gold can keep it.
Kidding.. no awards.
