I got an email this morning for an update on the Hawkeye 50k. It looks like the race is full. There are only three age divisions: Junior (up to 29), Senior (30-49, usually a big division), and Masters (50+). That kind of bites I think. Not that I plan to contend for a top 3 finish in any age group but there is a huge different between the average 30-year-old and say a 45-year-old. I would have like to see something more in line with the USATF age groups.
Tim the friendly race director has posted a video of the entire course. This is great news since I won’t be able to run it before the race. Check out Tim’s video below.
