Elk Reintroduced

North American Elk reintroduced
In 2005 Nickel Preserve staff completed an Elk Reintroduction Implementation Plan The initial group of elk arrived on the preserve on March 8th. Herd size for the release was 20 animals, including fifteen females (10 adults, 5 sub-adults) and 5 males (3 adults, 2 sub-adults), with 20 more possible the following spring.

A holding enclosure was constructed in Sawmill Hollow that incorporates grasslands, forests, and adequate water to hold the elk. The elk were released from the enclosure after about three weeks.

 

Drop Bags

Drop Bag Information

  1. The 50K, 100K, and 100 Mile may have drop bags at the Start/Finish, Savannah Corner, and Hard Up Ahead Aid Stations.

  2. Drop bags should be a waterproof bag or small box type container. Trash bags, heavy duty plastic bags, recycled grocery tote bags, gym bags, sport bags, small ice chests, tupperware or rubbermaid containers all work well. Paper bags or cardboard boxes are not good materials for drop bags.

  3. Drop bags must be labeled in large letters with: YOUR NUMBER, YOUR NAME, The aid station where you want the bag to be delivered to.

  4. The drop bags must be places in the designated areas near the start/finish line 45 minutes before race time to be delivered to the aid stations.

  5. The 50K and 100K runners who want their drop bags as soon as they are finished with their race, will need to follow the crew map directions and drive out to the aid station(s) to pick them up. After the last 100 mile runners leave the drop bag aid stations, the drop bags will be delivered to the start/finish area.

  6. No runners or runners crew may drive on the course to get their drop bags, but should follow the crew maps to get there via paved roads. It is actually much quicker that way

Course Directional Description 100M/100K/50K

The Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd - 100M, 100K, 50K Course

Directions: The start of the race is at the primitive campground just north of the Iron Bridge. The course consists of a 0.5 mile leg out to the loop. All loops are ran in a clockwise direction, and you'll return to the start/finish at the campground after each loop. The 50K and 100K runners turn left when they reach the loop. The Hunnerd milers will turn right and do an out-and-back totaling seven miles and will return to the start/finish and then do three of the 50K loops. Seven miles into the loop, at the the "Out-N-Back" aid station, all runners will run northeast for approx 1.5 miles, turnaround, and come back to the Out-N-Back aid station and then continue southwest on the loop.

All intersections will be marked and confidence ribbons will be placed every 1/4 mile or so.
Glow Sticks will be hung for the nighttime hours. You will cross a few cattle guards along the way. While it is possible to run across the cattle guards, please use caution in crossing them especially if they are wet.
