The WILDS men of the PA WILDS have done it again. It wasn’t enough to invoke pain and suffering on the ultra folk, we just had to share the pain with the people who aren’t quite ready for a 100 miler. The Tyoga Running Club in cooperation with the Trail Dogs, DCNR, Lock Haven University, and a whole bunch of other people who put on your favorite Central Pennsylvania trail events present the Call of the Wilds Mountain Marathon. A shorter distance option to our wildly popular Eastern States 100. You will start 2 hours behind the 100 mile folks and cover the same first 17 miles before veering off and climbing a couple different mountains to make it back to the finish line at the gorgeous Little Pine State Park. There you will share the same down home welcoming atmosphere and food you have come to expect at the Green Monster, the Hyner, the Rothrock, and the Mega.
Local time: 8:30 AM
So you want to know about the course? Are you sure? Can you believe some of our committee who have seen it say it is tougher than the Mega (though not as technical), and mile for mile steeper and more elevation than Hyner? Believe it or not…come see for yourself.
The Call of the Wilds Mountain Marathon. Part of the Eastern States 100 weekend.

300 person limit. Hiker friendly, but you need to finish before dark - 13 hours or less.
