looking for a pacer for mcnaughton 100 on 4-10-2010
what are their "pacing" rules ?
i might do it.
"As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man I have chalked up many a mile. Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks, And I've learned much from both of their styles." ~ Jimmy Buffett
"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit. "No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."”
Not going for 150?
They're publishing options for 200- and 500-mile runs also, but it's unclear how to apply for these.
Luckily, I'm already entered into the Massanutten lottery so I'm not worrying about this at the moment.
MTA--Found the reg pages:
I keep getting confused between the two McNaughtons.
From going back to read the websites, it looks like the Illinois McNaughton in April is 100-max, while the new Vermont version in May is the one with the less-conceivable distances. The original IL one used to have a 150 option.
Not sure about the muddiness of one vs. the other.
MTA: From what I can tell from hanging around this website, another one (John) would be a great pacer.
The concept of a 500 Mile race I find so intriguing. Not sure if the 10 Mile loop would be a blessing or curse after awhile. Would the mental challenge of knowing you can quit 49 prior times through the start finish area push you to stop or give you comfort that it is only another 10 miles until that loop is over.
500 miles / 9 days = about 5.5 loops per day. Wonder if you would still be having fun after 6 or 7 days?
