Prior to this year we have not had to place a field limit on the race. Due to the increased interest, we now have to limit the race to a maximum of 110 entrants. Once the limit of 110 entrants is reached, registration will close and no additional entries will be accepted.
We will post the roster for the 50K individual race this coming weekend.
The 50k race has a ten (10) hour time limit for completion, with a time cut-off of six (6) hours at the mile 19 aid station. Runners will be required to be out of the mile 19 aid station within six (6) hours in order to be allowed to continue in the race.
The eighth annual 50 kilometer race will begin at 7:30 a.m. on June 8th, 2013. The start line is on Garret Rd. in Ohiopyle, PA near the start of the 70.5 mile race. The course will follow the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail, terminating at the Trailhead near Route 31. This is a point-to-point race. We will have bus transportation available prior to the race. The bus will pick up runners near the 50K finish area and transport them to the start line, before the race. There will be no transportation after the race. Since it is a point-to-point race, runners are welcome to bring a crew. There are designated parking areas at each of the checkpoint/aid stations, which must be utilized. The Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail is a state park, and we are fortunate to receive a permit to run the race. Failure to use the designated parking areas could result in a revocation of our race permit.
