McKay Hollow Madness
The McKay Hollow Madness 25K Trail Run is roughly 25 kilometers of mostly single track trail. The course is run on sections of the Sinks, Panther Knob, Stone Cut, Mountain Mist, Goat, Warpath Ridge, McKay Hollow, Arrowhead and Natural Well Trails. This is a technical race with some difficult climbs and descents. There will be TWO aid stations: the first at O'Shaughnessy Point (~5 miles) and the near South Monte Sano Trail head parking lot which is just off of Monte Sano Blvd across from the Burritt Museum (~10 miles).
For your own safety and respect for the volunteers, there will be STRICT CUTOFF TIMES SET (TBD) AT BOTH AID STATIONS. IF YOU ARRIVE AT EITHER AID STATION AFTER THE POSTED CUTOFF TIME (TBD) YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE. THE FINAL FINISH CUTOFF TIME WILL BE 5 HOURS.
Medical assistance will be provided by the HEMSI HART rescue team and the Huntsville Cave Rescue Unit. There will be TWO aid stations, both full service(consult course map) at around 5 miles and 10 miles. It is recommended that you carry at least one bottle of fluids with you the entire run. In addition be advised that limited food items will be provided at the TWO Aid Stations, so if you have any particular caloric needs you need to remember to pack it in.
