Dude, Where's this Effin' Trail???

Is this a run for you? As the name implies, this is not your "normal" well-marked trail run.
If in doubt, call  Louis Joline 816-228-3842 or 816-679-8185 to discuss the race course. No course maps or course descriptions are available before packet pickup. Finish times range from 5 hours to over 10 hours. 5th Annual.

2010 Results 
 
Here are the preliminary results from 2010 Run. As advertised, the winners were based on the quiz. The score on the quiz was increased for those who went down the rope, so if you did the rope let me know and I will increase your score.
 
Those who missed six (or more) questions are advised to get new glasses. A beaver is a rodent, and you should not feed bread or grain to the elk or bison. You are encouraged to feed them an apple. There are no reindeer in the park and the limit on large mouth bass is 2 with a minimum length of 15 inches. If you like to catch more than two fish I would suggest that you go for bait fish. You can have as many as 150 of these and you can use a net to catch them. Remember this for next year. Only if you ran leg 5 would you know that hedge apples are useful as course markers,  Many old questions will be retired next year. Congratulations to David Salavitch who handed in a perfect Quiz, and to Brad, Dave and Kurt who missed only one question.
 
Speaking of next year, it is my intention to rotate in perhaps two of the omitted sections from last year on leg 6, while leaving out the fields on leg 2. I could also put in a faster, but less interesting route to the silo on leg 4. And for those who ran legs 1, 2, and 6, I might suggest legs 3, 4, and 6. This is easy to do if you leave a car (or a horse) at the end of leg 4. If anyone wants to loan a riding mower I could improve several sections.
 
LOST AND FOUND:
Large black "Spyder" brand long sleeve tech shirt
Small black "Nike" brand long sleeve tech shirt, very stretchy fabric, frayed sleeves
brown "Polartec" cap containing one black glove

Welcome to the 5th Annual Dude, Where's the Trail Run...also known as the "Directionally-Challenged Lost Souls' Feeding the Vultures Run." The headliner run is a 50-Kilometer Solo Run, but there is also a two-person relay, and 3-leg Bill Smith Sampler, and a 33K (20.7-mile) solo run.
 
This is a non-competitive event.  Run it with a friend or friends.  Groups of 1 to 5 will start at one time in "waves."  (Dude Waves).  Maps, aid, and a finisher's award will be provided. 
 
You will need to bring: a water bottle or hydration system, a cell phone, the map provided, and your wits.  Optional: a compass, some nutritional items, and someone else's wits.
 
Course:
All courses are measured and fairly close to dead-on accurate, unless you take a wrong turn.  The course is very scenic and wooded, and is on single-track trails, deer trails, and a little bit of bushwhacking in NO TRAILS areas.  There is also some pavement about 2/3 of the way through the 50K race. 
 
Is this a run for you? We don't like whiners. If in doubt, call  Louis Joline 816-228-3842 or 816-679-8185 to discuss the race course. No course maps or course descriptions are available before packet pickup. Finish times range from 5 hours to over 10 hours. 7th Annual. 
 
The race director (Lou Joline), advises strongly against wearing shorts on this run.  Lightweight pants (not tights) are more suited to the rigors of running through the woods' brambles and wild rose bushes, not to mention the ubiquitous Missouri Thorn Trees with their 4-inch flesh-eating thorns.  Take a look at one of Rick Mayo's legs, after he completed the 2006 version of the 50K:

Support and Aid Stations:
This race has minimal support at ad-hoc aid stations.  Some food, water, and beverages are supplied for your comfort (and survival).

Quiz:
There will be a quiz...so stay sharp.
 
Testimonial:
"This is one of my favorite all-time low-key events.  In 2008, I ran the 50K on that cold and snowy morning, even though I had a bad cold start the night before...I just couldn't see myself missing this event.  It's just too much fun to run with friends and to mentor the newbies through it, and see all of the areas and sights that "mere humans" never see." 
        - Ben Holmes, Trail Nerd
 
Fees $20 in advance, $25 the day before, $30 day of race (race day entry is discouraged, but at least tell us you are coming).
