The Danimal 2019

October 19 @ 1:00 pm - October 20 @ 9:00 pm

Come join us at Sam Houston Jones State Park in Lake Charles, LA for the Lake Area’s only ultra-marathon. Sam Houston Jones State Park consists of mostly single track, root rich dirt trails. This race is good for first-timers, as well as, the most seasoned runners. The Danimal 12K-25K-50K will take place on Saturday, October 19, 2019. Awards will be given to the overall male and female in each distance and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd male and female in 10 year age groups as follows: 0-19,20-29,30-39,40-49,50-59,60 and up.
Once again, we will have the coveted DFL (Dead Flippin’ Last) award for each distance.

NEW FOR 2019

As demanding as The Danimal is, we’ve been told it’s too easy. Never one to back away from a challenge, we’ve come up with The Dirty Double, which will take place on Sunday, October 20, 2019. For The Dirty Double, you will run the same distance and course on Sunday that you will run on Saturday. For example, if you run the The Danimal 25k on Saturday, you run The Dirty Double 25k on Sunday. Believe us, it is more difficult than it sounds!

We are looking for the most competitive trail runners around so we’re making it a little more interesting by offering cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Overall in each distance of The Dirty Double. Prize amounts for The Dirty Double are as follows:

Dirty Double 12K-
1st – $100
2nd – $50
3rd – $25

Dirty Double 25K-
1st – $300
2nd – $100
3rd – $50

Dirty Double 50K-
1st – $500!!
2nd – $300!!
3rd – $100!!

Winners are calculated by the fastest cumulative times from BOTH days.

There will be NO GENDER, AGE GROUP, or DFL awards for The Dirty Double.

*All finishers of The Dirty Double 50K, who finish within the required 8 hour cut off time, will receive a custom belt buckle.*
