This is an old school type of race – minimal cost, minimal aide stations but an extraordinary experience on a fun but challenging course with good food and drink at the end.  We have a giveaway for those who register before 4/25/24.

Just like last year, the 10-mile distance will be the RRCA NYS 10-mile trail 2024 championships. We will have special awards for overall and age group winners.

To keep it interesting, we will run the first 10 mile leg in reverse direction from last year to give everyone a new challenge.  For those  doing the 20 , you  will reverse course for the second loop and those doing the 50k get to pick the direction they’ll run on loop 3.

The race begins at 8:30 am and consists of one, two, or three loops on marked trails in Highland Forest. The course covers 10, 20, or 31 miles, with climbs of 1380′, 2760′, or 4140′ respectively. You will be able to switch race lengths during the race provided you meet the cutoff.

WHERE: Highland Forest is located about 3 miles east of Fabius NY on Rte. 80; see directions. The race starts and finishes at the Community Pavillion just across the road from the parking lot. There is no fee for parking, but the Park welcomes donations.

WHEN: Bib pickup and registration is at the Community Pavilion (across from the parking lot) starting at 7:30 AM. The race day registration fee is $55.

WARNING: It is possible to sprain ankles, break bones, and encounter wildlife and insects such as black flies and/or bees. Carry medication if you are allergic. Trail running requires agility of foot and the ability to keep one eye on the trail and the other on the blazes (markers). Some will get lost momentarily. If there are no blazes in front of you, go back. You may encounter vehicles on the dirt roads and at crossings.

 

Participants are encouraged(and pricing reflects this) to pre-register so that we can determine the amount of food to provide. Registration is available through RunSignUp at the following link: Run Signup

TRAIL CONDITION: The course is about 95% on hiking trails and 5% on dirt roads. It will have a mixture of single-track and wider logging lanes.  Expect mud, roots, gravel, and a soft pine needle trail!

TIME CUT-OFFS: The time cut-off for beginning the second loop is 3 hours. The cut-off time for a third loop is 4.5 hours.

REST ROOMS: There are restrooms in a separate building near the Community Pavillion. No shower facilities at the park.

REFRESHMENTS: Minimal support will be provided on the course. Carry hydration and fuel as you require. One water stop is planned at ~5 miles and the Start/Finish area will have water and fuel available. Depending on volunteers, more support may be available but do not count on this. After the run, enjoy food and beverages at the Community Pavilion. We’re planning on grilling again this year and may have carrot cake muffins.
