June 22, 2013 - Schramm Park State Recreation Area
Come on out to the Ramblin' Runners Redundant Run, or as we like to call it The Dizzy GOAT. You choose how long you run, walk, or crawl on this challenging 3.5 mile looped course... Over and over and over and.... Get the idea? Redundant...
The Dizzy GOAT is the 5th race in the Great Plains Trail Series (GPTS) hosted by Angry Cow Adventures and The Greater Omaha Area Trail-runners. Points scored during this and all races in the series will apply to your overall standing. Series winners will be determined after the series finale, the 2nd Annual G.O.A.T.z Trail Runs at Cunningham Lake on October 27th, 2013.
UPDATE - May 8, 2013 8:30 p.m. CST
We are excited to announce The Dizzy GOAT has reached it's capacity. While we wish we could accept any and all registration the simple fact is that we need to respect the park and it's other users, who are many. Keep your eyes peeled for contests from two of our sponsors, Red Dirt Running Company and Handyman Joe's for your chance to win an entry to this years race.
Now on to ensuring we provide you with the best race experience possible. Yessss!
UPDATE - May 8, 2013
6 weeks away and The Dizzy GOAT is nearing a sellout. As of this afternoon 130 hardy souls have registered to run either 3, 6, or 12 hours. WOW! Who'da thunk we'd have 150 people sign up to run 3.5 mile loops of Schramm Park State Recreation Area? Suppose we did, and you haven't disappointed.

June 22nd is rapidly approaching and Schramm Park is finally showing the signs of Spring we've been waiting for. The wildlife is coming to life. The deer and turkey are happily patrolling the park. Birds are singing. The trees are turning their familiar green and families are flocking to the trails for hikes or bird watching.
We have reached 50% of our 150 runner capacity and expect to sell out the remaining 75 in the next few weeks. Just a reminder that the early registration period ends on May 12th. Registration increases $10 for each event on May 13th. Get registered now at - Ultrasignup
Current entries (as of April 30) look like this:
3 Hours - 24
6 Hours - 16
12 Hours - 35
It's pretty neat to see the number of people who have chosen to challenge themselves to do more. The empowerment that comes with knowing you can run or walk on these trails for up to 12 hours is incredible and we are going to enjoy every minute of seeing you do it.
Our medals have been ordered. All we can say is wait until you see them! Remember, you decide how you run your race, but we decide how you earn your medal. Each runner regardless of the run you've signed up for has two ways to earn their medal.
3 Hours - 3 loops (10.5 miles) or more OR complete the full THREE hours regardless of distance
6 Hours - 7 loops (24.5 miles) or more OR complete the full SIX hours regardless of distance
12 Hours - 14 loops (49 miles) or more OR complete the full TWELVE hours regardless of distance
