4th & Elm Church of Christ: 400 Elm Street, Sweetwater, United States
Get ready for the 5th Annual Beat the Street for Little Feet benefitting Cornerstone Christian School! The event includes: a Half Marathon, 5K Run, 50K Bike Tour, 100K Bike Tour, and a 1Mi Fun Run/Walk for all ages. Come spend the morning with us and enjoy great exercise, fun and even some food!
For the 100K and 50K road event, racers will start in the town of Sweetwater. Racers will have rolling hills that take them out and around a scenic view of Lake Sweetwater. After the scenic route comes the climbing stage with a 217 foot climb and an average grade of 3% totaling 1.6 miles in distance. What goes up must come down with a long descent to Highway 70. Highway 70 will take racers back into town fast because of the brand new smooth tarmac. The course crosses over I-20 and north of town passing the historic Rattlesnake Round Up Fairgrounds. The finish will test the grit of any true sprinter. Within the last mile and a half, the route includes a 250 yard 2% grade hill which riders must conquer leading to the finish. If you want to test your metal, the 100K route will continue West of town taking the Highland Hills Rollers. Riders will double their scenic enjoyment with views of the Lake Trammel and the hills south of town. The coordinator would like to make all riders aware that this route will be crossing a cause-way which can have gravel or water. Flat West Texas Plains (and possibly wind) will take riders to Roscoe, Texas, and back into Sweetwater. Bring your aero bike as wind can be a factor.
