2014 Wapack and Back Results are up!
Congratulations to winners of the 50 mile event, Eric Ahern and Debbie Livingston. Topping the 21.5 mile field were Sam Jurek and Kelsey Allen. Kelsey set a new womens course record in a time of 3:57:38.
A huge thank you to the volunteers who spent many hours out on the course keeping the runners fueled, smiling and safe, without them races would not happen! Thank you to all the runners who came out and made our first year of directing the Wapack and Back trail races fun! We hope to see you all next year for more fun on the roots, rocks and beautiful trails! Congratulations to all the finishers of this years race! Enjoy your finishers syrup!
The Wapack and Back Trail Races consist of a 50 mile ultramarathon and an end-to-end trail race run on the 21.5 mile Wapack Trail (www.wapack.org). Leading from Mt Watatic in Massachusetts to North Pack Mt in Greenfield, NH, the rocky ledges of this technical trail (approx 4600 ft elevation gain) afford views of the Boston skyline to the east, Berkshire and Green Mountains to the west and White Mountains to the north. Ultrarunners who complete the 43 mile out and back section will be receive a finisher's medal and be listed in the results. Four aid stations (which ultrarunners pass twice) will provide water, electrolyte drink, sugary and salty snacks. Post-race refreshments will be provided.
Local time: 2:31 PM
