6 Hours of Alafia Classic - April 2, 2011
« on: December 27, 2010, 08:41:31 PM »
I just got my SWAMP newsletter and looks like it's official.  I had only heard rumors about this race but looks like it is official.  Come get sum 6 hrs of Alafia... Can you say pain?  It is put on by the Friends of Alafia so money goes back into the park.  Two courses
 
Course 1 = Easy 8 mile Course = Easy Loop (river loop, rock garden, sandpine, double track)
Course 2 = Advance 10 course = Easy course + North Creek + Rollercoaster but no SandPine.
 
Several solo and team categories for both I think.  Beginner and non-beginner (sport, expert).  MOre details on soon to follow on http://www.friendsofalafia.com
