The Finger Lakes 50s Trail Races are now full. However, you can still register and be put on the wait list. Usually, there are many people from the wait list who still get into the race, so please register. As people cancel, the wait list will be tapped to fill those spots. You can view the wait list by going to the coffee mug icon above or go here.

If you are on the wait list, you will be contacted to be invited to fill a vacant spot as they become available.

The Finger Lakes Fifties Trail Race consists of a 25K, and ultras of 50K, and 50Mile trail races taking place in the Finger Lakes National Forest, Hector NY. All three races will use the same loop course, starting and finishing at the Potomac Group Campsite. The course is a 16.5-mile loop covering single-track trails (85%), grassy pastures (5%) complete with grazing cows and cow pies, and dirt and paved roads (10%). There is 1292' of climb per loop. 25K runners complete 1 loop, 50K race covers 2 loops, and the 50 mile race completes 3 loops plus a "baby loop" covering about a half mile. 50K and 50Mile races start at 6:30am and 25K race starts at 8am. Runners will encounter 6 aid stations on the course including the finish area – The Living Room aid station (there are 5 aid stations, but runners will hit the South Beach aid station twice making it 6 stations per loop).
