Angry Dave's Flying Ad

AURA “Fun Run” (no UTS points)
Distance: 20-ish miles for the Catsmacker, 12-ish miles for the Kitty Run option
Start/Finish Area: the start is at the Lake Sylvia Day Use area (where you would go if you went swimming in the lake). NOT at Camp Ouachita (where the Full Moon and Traveller start).
Start is at 7:00am, sign-in will be available (hopefully) by 6:00am.
Cost: This is a donation-based run. That said, we need to cover costs for Forest Service permitting, aid station supplies, finish line cookout, and other race equipment/transportation/logistics. Please make sure that we can cover those costs and continue offering low-cost events. You can make an online payment here, or a cash/check donation on race day. Donations are non-refundable, and any proceeds will be donated to AURA. (A suggested donation to cover costs is $20. Thank you!)

Driving & Parking Directions: You should be able to find Williams Junction, AR on most maps; it is approximately 30 miles west of Little Rock on Hwy 10, or 20 miles south of Morrilton on Hwy 9.  To get to the race site from Williams Junction, go north on Hwy 10/9 for 1.5 miles, then take Hwy 324 west and follow for three and a half miles. The Lake Sylvia day use area will be on your left about 1/2mile after Camp Ouachita. If the road turns to gravel you went half mile too far.
