5 Different Trails.
66.6 (ish) Miles.
And all you have to do is finish get your mileage and run each trail clockwise and counter clockwise in 24 hours.
Easy work, right?
However, there's a catch.
What trail you run is decided by the roll of die.
Whether you run it clockwise or counter-clockwise, by the flip of a coin.
To be counted as a finisher, you MUST run all the trails backwards and forwards.
Ah, it's starting to sink in, isn't it?
Hellblazer is the great equalizer. The slowest weekend clogger has as much a chance of winning as does the fastest person on the course. Speed is great. Physical endurance, even better. But at the end of the day, there's no way to predict if you'll be on the podium or the bottom of the pile.
So, are you willing to risk it? Are your ready to throw your fate to the winds and see where it lands?
Then join us on Saturday, June 6th, 2020 for Hellblazer, The World's Most Unpredictable Trail Race.
NEW FOR 2020:
We get it, y'all.
Maybe you're anHBOG and you need a new challenge. Maybe you're a rookie with a chip on his shoulder. Or maybe you're just that special kind of sufferjunkie that looks at a challenge, and says to themselves "Huh. That looks terrible. SIGN ME UP!"
In any case, we got you. Starting on Friday, June 5th, 2020, the day before Hellblazer, Crossroads follows the same basic format as Hellblazer but for two days and 133.2 miles. Of course, there'll be a few special surprises along the way, but I'm sure it's nothing a hard charger like you can't handle. 3:)
p.s. By now, some of you more clever runners have thought: "Hey, there's six sides to a die and only five trails. What happens if I roll a six?" Well, then, if you want to continue, you have to give The Devil his due.

Hey, how ya'll doin'?
Over the last year or so, it been pretty quiet on this end, but for good reason. I honestly didn't know what I wanted Boo Hag to be anymore. While the below the radar, guerilla style approach I had been running on was fun, it really wasn't gonna work out in the grand scheme of things.
So, I took some time off, figuring that I'd help some friends with their projects, give myself the space to breathe, and really decide what I wanted.
Funny thing is, it took finding out what I DIDN'T want to get me back in the saddle.
What I don't want is to try to take over the world. Instead of trying to be all things to all people, I'm gonna start small, and let this thing grow organically. If and when I expand will never be based on if I can, but if I should.
My only goal going forward is to put on well done, challenging, fun, and most importantly, affordable races. Races that you want to come back to year after year. Races that feel like family reunions, but where only the cool kids show up and Aunt Betty doesn't get mad because no one liked her deviled egg and peanut butter casserole.
So there you are. Welcome to the new Boo Hag!
