The Little Gunpowder 50k is a classic Fat Ass style, out-and-back ultramarathon with no fees, no frills, and no excuses. The race runs along the Little Gunpowder trail system and is mainly single track trail with a few short connecting sections of paved roads. The race begins and ends at the historic Jerusalem Mill in Kingsville, Maryland. As with every year, we will be collecting donations for the Friends of Jerusalem Mill. The organization works very hard to care for the trails, so please consider bringing a donation.
Local time: 8:09 PM
4pm Finish (9 hour cut-off)
The Gunpowder trail provides various challenges ranging from leaf covered rocky terrain to precipitous trails with questionable blazes. The course will be marked with blue and white striped surveyor’s ribbon. We recommend you carry a cell phone. All runners should bring a gallon of water and will be assigned a small item to bring for the aid tables (coke, ginger ale, cookies etc.). We will communicate aid assignments about a week from race start.
We will operate 3 small aid stations (7 total being an out-n-back course with turnaround) and while there is no strict cut off, we ask that you be prepared to complete the race in no more than 9 hours.
