Aloha Athletes !
It's FINALLY here ! The race of the year ! 54 tough miles over an 18 hour time period for a measly 10 bucks ! Not only that…you get aid stations with water and sports drink AND Kat's yummy moche and Cheryl's famous pasta salad !! Also, don't forget that you can pick-up some cool Christmas gifts early, as we have a recent shipment of very nice Patagonia short-sleeve shirts for $20, unless you'd rather wait and pay $35 in the stores. Don't forget, you have the opportunity, this year, to run the Peacock 54 as a two-person relay for $10 each…still a bargain !
Just be out at the Dillingham Airfield Control Tower parking lot at around 5:30 am, this Saturday, and we'll get you signed-up for the very tough Peacock 54 ultramarathon. We plan to start the race promptly at 6:00am.
You say "what about drop bags?" Many of the veterans plan to bring a drop bag with their special goodies, which we will take to the bottom of Long Road for them to use there. Most plan to use their vehicle, which will be parked at the start/finish for another drop bag. Which reminds me… Be sure and have proper vehicle documentation…insurance card, registration, etc. in your vehicle, and park in designated parking stalls.
See you there,
Don & Gordon
