A new small marathon that looks like a lot of fun....


There is a new marathon (also a 50K) in April that looks like it could be a very nice race. It starts in Willard, Missouri at the Frisco Highline trail head which is just north of Springfield and runs along a crushed limestone trail to Bolivar. It is just a 2.5 hour drive to Bolivar to catch a bus to the start and there is race morning packet pickup.....I am thinking this would make an excellent one day race trip.....

awesome - hope to see you guys there. are you guys members of "marathon maniacs"? i meet a few of the maniacs when i was in little rock for the half and i really got inspired. i am going to attempt to do the "frisco" and the "flying pig" on may 3rd so i can meet the entry level maniac criteria.

No, I am actually a member of marathongeeks.com, though I should join one of the 50 state clubs. I see a lot of the marathon maniacs out and about though.
