Join us for the inaugural Western PA Endurance Fest on March 29, 2014. The event will be held at the IUP Co Op Park in Indiana, PA. Three separate races will be held: 25k solo, 50k solo, and 50k relay. The races will consist multiple loops of a 5k trail course. This race has a unique "choose your own adventure" feature where runners decide which direction to run their loops.
Local time: 11:57 PM
All runners begin the race by running a counter-clockwise loop around the park. The course is challenging as each loop boasts 600 feet of elevation gain for a total of 3000 ft for the 25k and 6000 ft for the 50k races. Aid station every 3.1 miles.
25k Race (START 9:00 AM: 5 hour time limit): Upon reaching the aid station at mile 3.1, runners must then run two (2) more loops counter-clockwise and two (2) loops clockwise. The order that each loop is run is up to the runner.
50k Race (START 8:00 AM: 8 hour time limit): Upon reaching the aid-station at mile 3.1, runners must then run and additional four (4) loops counter-clockwise and five (5) loops clockwise. The order that each loop is run is up to the runner.
50k Relay (START 8:00 AM: 8 hour time limit): Relay teams consist of two (2) or four (4) runners. Each relay team must complete five laps per direction, but there is no required amount of laps per relay member.
