This is a graduate-level, no-frills, self-serve hundred. You must have finished a previous 100-mile race since Jan. 1, 2009 in the allotted time to enter the Hawk Hundred. The 32-hour course will be four 23-mile laps with an 8-mile out-and-back on the full Clinton Lake North Shore Trail System. Much of the heavily wooded course is rocky and root-bound, though relatively flat. There's an out-and-back hill climb close to each end of the East-West course
Each lap features a mile-long stretch along Clinton Lake, most of it on jagged rock. There will be two unmanned crew access stations -- one about five miles into each 23-mile lap, and one 17 miles in. They are both easy to get to by car. Each station will feature a pop-up tent with table, water jug and sign-in book. Runners will sign in and out at each station on each visit, whether they spend time at the station or not. Since there will be no aid station volunteers, crew and pacers are highly recommended. Volunteers will patrol the course and the aid stations throughout the race. T-shirt for all entrants; belt buckles for all finishers. 1st, 2nd, 3rd place awards, men and women.
