100 MILE PSYCHO KILLER
PRESENTS THE PSYCHO KILLER
We’ve all seen those horror movies. You know, the ones where the crazed killer is lurking in a dark house where the phone line has been cut and the victim just keeps going further into the house as opposed to just running out the front door? Yeah, that victim is you and the Psycho Killer 100 course is the masked murderer lurking behind the door.
The Psycho Killer 100 mile race is geared towards those unique individuals who enjoy a long day in the saddle, those type of folks that both adore and despise the terrain that lay before them, and the people who find great pleasure in pushing through the pain and fatigue to survive and see another day.
Those considering to race this distance consider yourselves forewarned, this ain’t no flat and well manicured gravel road tour. You’re going to find all the hills, sand and loose gravel that the dark side of your heart desires.
On a serious note: This race course is designed to be extremely difficult. There are sections where you will more than likely have to walk at one point or another. Sager Rd will remain in the course regardless of conditions. There areas where you will be over 20 miles form the start/finish and 15 miles from an aid station. Spring in Michigan can bring with it volatile weather from 80 degrees and sunny to 35 degrees and heavy rain, you will need to be prepared to handle the elements for the duration of the event. Maintaining an average pace of 10mph including breaks, course navigation and rest stops will not be easy. A high level of fitness and preparedness will be required to complete this event, and preparation should not be taken lightly!
Okay then, you’re one sick puppy! Now that you’ve convinced yourself this is for you, here’s what you can expect….
