This was from 2010. We’re just keeping it so people can remind themselves what they did.
All the pain and suffering of an ultra, without the annoying change in scenery!
Dizzy Daze 13.1/26.2/50K/100K
March 26, 2011 – 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
6:00 a.m. Early Start
Dizzy Daze is held at beautiful Green Lake Park in Seattle, Wa. The race uses the outer running loop around the lake. Runners will travel counter-clockwise on the groomed dirt path. The total distance of the loop is approximately 3.2 miles; you will run 4 loops plus a short out & back for the half marathon, 8 loops plus an out & back for the full marathon, 10 loops for the 50K (yes, you’ll run a bonus mile, for which you will not be charged extra) and 19 loops plus an out & back for the 100K.
For those with more sense there will be a 13.1-mile and an official 26.2-mile marathon distance (not a certified BQ, sorry). The 13.1 will be Half Fanatics applicable, and the marathon distance will fulfill Marathon Maniacs requirements. The trail is a partially paved, pancake-flat loop, making it a great course for a PR or to attempt a new distance.
There will be one fully stocked aid station with all the usual ultra-kibble: water; PowerBar gels, energy blasts and sports drink; electrolyte caps; a selection of sweet and salty snacks and pizza later in the day.
Dizzy Daze is the brainchild of Jonathan Bernard, who along with Sam Thompson set out to create Seattle’s hardest and easiest 50K/100K races. The Carkeek 12-Hour is nothing but hills and Dizzy Daze has nothing remotely resembling one.
This year Dizzy will be a joint production of a tanned Jonathan (who deserted us for sunnier climes but promises an appearance) and the Two Cats Running crew, also known as Matt and Betsy.
