The St. Croix Scenic 50 race will be held on Sunday, Jan. 20 featuring three events: the Individual 50-Mile Run, a Four Leg 50-Mile Team Relay (with two or four runners), and an Individual 50K Run.
The 50-mile run and team relay will begin at 5 a.m. in Christiansted and the 50K individual will begin at 7 a.m. at the top of the Beast. If 50 miles or 50km alone seems too much, runners may get some friends together and take part in a relay. The race goes east to west and back again.
There will be prizes for breaking the course record. For the 50-mile race the first male and first female to break the current race record for their division will be awarded $500. For the 50km race the first male and first female to break the current record for their division will be awarded $250. Finally, for the 50-mile relay the first all-male, all-female, or coed team to break the current race record for their division will be awarded $100.
What better way to see beautiful St. Croix than to run over its rugged mountains and along its stunning shore line. For complete information, including course briefings and race registration, visit www.stcroix50.com
