Mendon Trail Run - A Trail Run for Everyone!
10 km loop course, entirely off-road, mostly doubletrack with some singletrack. The course will be marked, turns marked at trail junctions, and traffic cones at the road crossing. The course has several rolling hills. All of the hills are run-able, but there is one short, steep climb halfway through the loop that many participants choose to walk. Estimated 800-1000 feet of climb per 10k loop.
Aid station for 20k, 30k and 50k runners at start/finish, plus one water stop about 3.5 miles into loop. Race presented by the Rochester Orienteering Club.
New this year! Tee shirts will be offered, for an additional fee. Details to be announced.

At the race for 50K, from 7:00 to 8:00 AM.
For all other distances, from 8:05 to 9:30 AM. If race has not filled up, day-of-meet entries will be accepted during the above time periods.
Refunds, minus a $5 administration fee, will be given upon request (e-mail to the registrar) until October 5. No refunds after October 5.
Pacers will be permitted in the 50K only, and only for the last two loops. There is no charge for pacers, but we require that you fill out a waiver. See the registration table for the waiver. There are several rules for pacers, most of which are common in ultras:
Local time: 5:10 AM
- Pacers can't carry supplies for the runner (they can't carry the runner's Camelbak if they have one, for example; they can't carry their water bottle, or food for them, etc.)
- The pacer must arrive at the aid station with the runner or after the runner, and must leave the aid station with the runner or before the runner. So the pacer can't race ahead and be filling the runner's water bottle, rounding up food items, etc., or linger after the runner has left the aid station.
- Since we won't be charging for pacers, pacers are not allowed to take supplies for himself/herself at the aid stations.
- The pacer can't run through the finish line with the runner, either at the end of the race or when finishing a lap.
