And you thought the hills of Miracle Match were a challenge enough. Are you ready for something sick and twisted?
Miracle Match Marathon Presents the Ultra Marathon Course.
The Ultra Marathon Course is 50K Course (as if the Marathon Course was not tough enough) that follows the Marathon Course with a fun (and flat – I am serious here!) little addition.
The ultra follows the marathon route right up to the finish line on the suspension bridge.
How easy would it be to turn in and call it a day, but oh no, you over achiever, you chose the ULTRA!
Pass the suspension bridge and stay on the newly designed river trail heading back to where your adventure began earlier in the morning, Waco’s McLane Stadium.
You will turn left and circle the Baylor Basin and the entire tailgating area.
Cross over the pedestrian bridge (deja vu?), turn left onto the river trail and head towards the Ferrell Center.
Make a sharp 180 degree turn at the end of the sidewalk and head towards downtown, high fiving the other ultra crazies as you enter the homestretch.
Go up the ramp just past the suspension bridge.
Turn right and cross the Washington Street bridge.
At the end of the bridge, make a right turn and turn onto the suspension bridge.
You made it. Welcome home.
Cross that finish line for your Texas size medal and that famous Miracle Match party waiting on the bridge to celebrate your awesomeness! Celebrate your victory over the hills with a 17oz Stainless Double Wall Vacuum Sealed Bottle with your Miracle Match Finisher Logo. Fill it up with your preferred finish line beverage…water, Diet Coke, or our favorite, FIREBALL!
