This weekend Epic Ultras is hosting an ultra marathon, the Flint Hills Trail 40 Mile & Marathon, on the Flint Hills Nature Trail between Osawatomie and Ottawa. There will be over 100 participants.
Since this is a special event, equestrian users should be aware that marathon participants will not be yielding to horses. Please, be alert and use caution if you are riding the trail this weekend.
Marathon participants should give ample warning from at least 100 feet when approaching a horse, alerting the rider to which side you will be passing.
