Well its been two years since our last G-Town 50 miler so it was no surprise that when the pax were polled about prospective CSAUPs that we chose to host this one again. The comradery of this run originally created by Pizzaman in an effort to get the BRR feel without leaving Gaston County is something no Pax should miss regardless of running skill. The format will be similar with teams of 4 relaying BRR style around the county, running through all AOs. The legs have been evenly allocated so that most legs are 4 miles. (Think about it – most Pax get 2-3 miles in with each bootcamp style post.) If running is not your “thing” or your have self doubt about doing a 200 mile relay this is your time to step up and step out of your comfort zone.

I will post team members by Sept 7 so that we can have appropriate number of drivers. Start time will be 4AM (It is a CSAUP after all – what are you afraid of the dark?) FYI the route is posted below and has been altered slightly from previous years to keep Pax mostly on sidewalks but we will require reflective gear (I’m looking at you Seuss!) and lights until 7AM.
Experience is not required only a strong desire to lift up your fellow man. Speaking of which – there will be a twist this year- Pax will be asked for a donation to be collected for Least of These Carolina. You may have heard of this charity they do great work for foster parents in the area. LOT Carolinas’ purpose is to identify and service the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children and their caregivers, with the primary focus on children in foster/kinship care. They do this through community effort of local churches, businesses, and caring citizens; applying the Biblical principle of helping those in need to glorify God. If you’ve ever been to a Big Pappy Q he has had nothing but great things to say about them. So get off your arse and help yourself and your fellow man!
