This is a low-key, self-supported urban adventure run. It is not a race. If you are aiming to set a course record or beat your previous 50k time, this is not the event for you. However, if you like signing up for dumb events, running around strange places with a list of turn-by-turn directions, and taking pictures of painted horses, this is your jam!

You will see 30+ painted horses over the 35(ish) miles of your run. Most are gorgeous works of art, some are lovely tributes painted by students and teachers, a couple are mildly ridiculous, and one is a hilarious salute to capitalism. 

The route and horses are best enjoyed with others so you can get photos of your journey, keep each other sane, run safely, and help navigate/find turns/spot horses.
