      A little arse-kicking Trail Nerd race in Kansas...
       
      In the past five "Psycho Wyco Run Toto Run" 50-Kilometer events, there have only been nine sub-5-hour 50K finishers, despite there having been over 435 (50K) entrants.  And there has been only one sub-6-hour 50K female finisher in the history of the race. 
       
      We've decided that we need more Hall of Fame "Mud Stud" finishers!  After all, this is Kansas...how tough could it be???
       
      So...in a (perhaps misguided) attempt to attract racing talent of "truly epic proportions, " we will offer the following challenge:
       
      The Run Toto Run 50K Challenge
      • A $250 check and free entry for 5 years for the first female entrant to break the 5-hour barrier, (in addition to normal first-place prizes).
      • A $300 check and free entry for 5 years for the first entrant to break 4 hours on this course, (in addition to normal first-place prizes).
      • A $75 check and one free entry for any male entrant to break 5 hours on this course, (in addition to normal finisher-place prizes).
      • A $75 check and one free entry for any female entrant to break 6 hours on this course, (in addition to normal finisher-place prizes).
