THE SMOKEY/HALF SMOKEY

FULL SMOKEY SATURDAY JULY 24, 2021

HALF SMOKEY JULY 25, 2021

(TBC based on COVID 19 Provincial and Federal regulations)

The Smokey and the Half Smokey are new races for Don't Get Lost, and were designed to be based loosely on the somewhat infamous race developed by Gary Cantrell AKA Lazarus Lake, The Barkley Marathon! Although not nearly as brutal as the Barkley, The Smokey was supposed to be launched in the Summer of 2020 and be a race of considerable difficulty with very tight time limits, difficult navigation, purposefully difficult terrain and a longer overall distance compared to our other races. Due to Covid 19, this race was cancelled in 2020, and with the continuation of Covid the original design for this race will be modified for 2021.
