Run 4: Chocolate Bunny
The Chocolate Bunny is a nighttime run designed to mimic what you’ll experience during MMT. It is a marathon covering miles 70 to 96 of MMT, the section between the two Gap Creek/Jawbone aid stations — some sections of which all MMT runners will do in the dark. While it is the shortest of the Academy training runs (an even marathon), it’s got plenty of challenges including Big Run, Kern’s Mountain, and Bird Knob. Did we mention that it’s at night? The run starts and finishes at the Route 211 parking lot, which is near mile 90 at MMT.
We will meet at the Route 211 parking lot at 6:30 pm with the goal to be running by 7:00 pm. You will need a flashlight (that’s the point).
