The Legend

August 2

legendWelcome! The critters at Running Fit are excited to return to Sleepy Hollow! Custom medals to all half marathon finishers!

Sleepy Hollow State Park has 2,600 acres of hardwood forest, prairie grassland and 410 acre Lake Ovid. The course circles Lake Ovid and several other small lakes in a beautiful lightly hiked and biked area of Michigan. Much of the trail is actually grass covered - the perfect running surface! Some steep hills but none too long. There are some low areas that may be muddy and wet, could you want it any other way??

Sleepy Hollow State Park is 20 minutes north of Lansing, about an hour and a half drive from Metro Detroit and well worth it. Consider camping Friday night!

DWD Hell

September 20

dwdhellWhat is DWD, besides one a those ak-row-nims for Dances With Dirt?

You must be livin' in a cave if ya ain't heard of the DWD Relay and Ultramarathons! I'll tell ya what it ain't, it ain't no place for wimps and it ain't a place for pansies, "don't get my shoes dirty" runners afraid of a few roots and cliffs.

Dances With Dirt 5 Person Team Relay (Green Swamp, Gnaw Bone and Hell)

5 Person Team Relay, each member running 3 of 15 legs. Each leg averages 4 miles so over the course of a day, each runner covers around 12 miles. Teams drive a vehicle to the next exchange and the fire drill continues ...

An extreme course, team themes, vehicle decorations, costumes and endless planning are the back drop for an adventure that adds up to much more than its parts.

Each leg has or will become legendary. Legs from the Hell event with names like "This Sucks", "Where's the F'n Bridge" and "The Stupid Leg...Lake" have become part of a running legend. Each leg is described and rated in difficulty so the team can meet beforehand and choose who to abuse ... we mean, who to run what. Basically, a difficult, wicked on and off trail run with stupid spots. Stupid spots include swamp crossings, river crossings, hills too steep to climb and can only be a butt slide down. Did we mention poison ivy, thorns, poor marking, bad (no) footing, a waiver that mentions your death 3 times and that we charge you for this?
