Thank you runners, volunteers & safety crews!
The Moreau Lake Races will see several endurance events mixed in with lots of 80s music (playlist here) and unforgettable 80s fashion. The race is scheduled for September 8, 2013 at Moreau Lake State Park, known as “one of the top outdoor locations in the country” (Reserve America). We had a fun 2012 which featured several races but, most importantly, lots of hits from the ’80s. The 2013 events include:
- 15k trail run (8a) – a classic trail run: brutal run up the ‘Staircase of Death’ to start, leading into miles of rollers, creeks, etc. before making your way back down the ridge to the beach.
- 1.5k open water swim (8a) - 1500 meter swim (1 loop of aquathlon swim course).
- Aquathlon (9a) (1.5k swim, 5k trail run) – This is a great 1.5k swim followed by a 5k run on some fairly technical trails.
- 3k open water swim (9:30a) – 3000 meter swim (2 loops of aquathlon swim course).
80s clothing highly recommended. You may register for multiple events at a discount.
You will need to be a USAT member or buy a one-day USAT license for the aquathlon and swims ($10 for under 18, $12 for 18+). The 15k trail run is sanctioned by US Track & Field (no need to be a member). Maps for these events can be seen by clicking on the tabs above.
There is a $6 vehicle entry fee for the park. The beach offers full facilities including bathrooms, showers, changing areas, picnic tables and BBQs. Don’t be afraid to put some shrimp on the barbie when all is said and done.
