UltraCentric – 2011 Results

*brief results format to catch up with all the TALON action*

Big silver, cash, and fun were brought home from the UltraCentric weekend at Meadowmere Park located on the shores of Lake Grapevine, just northwest of Dallas, Texas.

If you enjoy running with a group of friends of all paces, this type of event may be for you. The course is a paved two mile loop along the lake where you run 6, 12, 24, or 48 hours. Run, rest, eat, sleep…whatever. Run and much or as little as you want within your time limit. That is your result! Simple enough. The short loop allows you to chat with a wide variety of runners…a cool feature of this format.

For those that have the speed and perseverance, there is a pound of silver (or cash value) awarded to the male and female 24 and 48 hour winners. That turned out to be a $520 payday!
