Febapple Frozen Fifty 2017

Saturday, February 18, 2017 6:00 AM
2 Bear Lane
Maplewood, NJ


Event Summary:
What is a Febapple? I have no idea. I like the course for the Mayapple 50K and 100K that is run in May and wanted to use close to the same course in the winter. I thought February was a good time to use the trail and thus called the event the Febapple Frozen Fifty.

What is a Febapple?

Trail Loop - 10 miles:
The course will follow almost identically the Eastern Portion of the Mayapple 50K course.  You will go through Summit Field twice every loop as well as Turtle Back Parking area.  This small redesign allows us to offer more aid after a shorter distance.  We found that this was needed in the colder climates of the Febapple versus the Mayapple.
 

Trail Marking
We will use survey tape, flour and landscape paint. 

Trail Surface and Terrain
In short, this course has a little bit of everything:

  • Long stretches of double-wide woods road
  • Meandering single-wide trail
  • A short half-mile stretch of pavement
  • Miles of soft dirt interlaced with ankle twisting rocks.  If there is rain leading up to the day of the race or during the race, it will be almost impossible to avoid certain patches of mud.
  • Good combination of level patches, rolling hills, moderate climbs, and a few very steep ascents and descents
  • There have been long stretches of ice in years of cold weather
