You can do it!
We want everyone to finish, we always do. So we have one strict rule. Whatever race you START , you MUST complete, otherwise you get a DNF. Now that being said, we realize that could be difficult, BUT, we give you ample support, with a grocery store nearby, we will even take orders and get you what you need. Lastly you have until MONDAY at NOON for EVERY RACE. Yes the 50k, 10mile or any of them, cut off for ALL races is MONDAY at NOON. So you've got all the support AND time you need. Get after it!
The course is set in a really beautiful piece of Long Island. Mainly in the pine barren area, a 10.48 mile loop has so little outside world interaction with it, you almost feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, just you and the trail.
There are two Aid Stations - One is the start finish, named North Country. The other is at just over 5.5 miles in named Whiskey Girl. You'll be treated with amazing volunteers and some great food at both. We typically like to have Long Haul at our events for a drink. Everything else varies pretty often. There will be the normal ultra running staples, like PB&J, pretzels, chips, some candy and fruit... and of course broth and perogies, but as the day goes on we'll bring in some other things like pizza and burgers, even been known to find some hot dogs ... we do take request and are happy to try to accommodate all as best we can.
a word on drop downs
You have until the moment your race goes off to change intended distance. Once you start your race, that is the distance you must complete in order to get anything other than a DNF. Course is very well supported and with such generous course cut offs, you can do it! We have been known to find volunteers to pace folx for anywhere from half a loop to even three whole loops (30+ miles) there's nothing stopping you from completing it.. but you.
Please let us know if you plan on having a pacer. While we don't charge for pacers, they do take up some food and water, so we need to plan accordingly. Pacers are allowed to start with you around dark. So if you finish a loop an hour before sunset, you can take your pacer, because it's likely that you'll finish that next loop, in the dark.
Crews are allowed at both AS, but depending on local rules, our permit , and the amount of folx registered, we may put some restrictions on which distances can have a crew at whiskey girl.
Refund are available up to SIX MONTHS before race date. Deferrals are available up until 30 days before race day. After that, there are no deferrals or refunds. We feel this is a pretty fair policy, especially compared to many races out there. Obviously if there are extreme circumstances, please reach out.
We have a great volunteer work for entry program dropping in 2023, please stay tuned!
