The Golden Hawk Endurance Challenge Slam challenges runners to run ESR -- Every Single Race -- on the Trail Hawks calendar in a single season, from Pi Day to Sanders Saunter. In races with multiple distances, you can choose any distance. The key is ESR. You must still pay entry fees for each race. There is a Golden Hawk entry fee ($90 -- dues-paying Trail Hawks get a $10 discount) as well -- it covers a long-sleeved T for all entrants, a personalized hoodie and personalized hand-thrown pottery mug for all finishers. Your total miles are included. If you run the max distances in each race, for instance, you are a finisher "Golden Hawk 204.4 Mi." Minimum distances -- you are Golden Hawk 57.7 Mi." We'll track what you do throughout the year and put that number, with your name on the finisher's swag. You must register by Jan. 1, 2019. You must attend the 2019 All Hands Meeting in January, where the Golden Hawk Challenger Class will be publicly inducted in an "Imperious Rex" ceremony. Finishers will get their swag and be honored at the All Hands Meeting 2020, following which, the next Challenger Class will be inducted. This group is for comments, questions, suggestions and smart-alecky remarks about The Golden Hawk. Can you run ESR? If so, you could be a GOLDEN HAWK!
