Ontario Summit Trail Races
Farfetched Enterprises is excited to announce our second year of the Ontario Summit Trail Races. We hope that you will join us at Ontario County Park at Gannett Hill on Saturday, September 14th, 2024 for this unique trail experience.
The Half Marathon course will consist of a full 13.1 miles of one-way running with no two-way traffic. You can expect to enjoy some amazing wooded trails that you might not have experienced before. The course consists of a high percentage of rolling tree-covered single-track located mostly around the summit of Gannett Hill, the highest point in Ontario County. You will run on nearly every trail within Ontario County Park, as well as a few trail surprises. There will be rocks, roots, wooden bridges, and some awe-inspiring views.
The 5 mile course starts just like the Half Marathon, but runners will turn a different direction at Aid Station 1 (approximately mile 3). The course stays completely within Ontario County Park and stays on trails with relatively little elevation change.
"Ontario County Trail Marathon"
Last year we scheduled our race the day before the Unlimited Breadsticks Trail Half Marathon and were somehow able to trick some hearty souls into doing both races. Even though the races are different weekends this year, we're still going to recognize those who want to complete the "Ontario County Trail Marathon". No discount this year, but we'll make up something special.
New this year, we will be offering the option to camp out the night before the race in the area by the lodges. As part of this option, we will provide a breakfast of fruit, eggs, coffee, tea, and baked goods from Plenty the Bakery. You will also be able to use the parking lot by the lodges. There are also options to use one of the campsites or cabins at the park, but athletes will need to make their own arrangements with Ontario County Parks.
- Three fully-stocked aid stations, every 3-4 miles along the course, with water, electrolyte drinks, gels, salty snacks, and Coke.
- Participants will receive a generous post-race meal of burritos, beer, and assorted goodies.
- Indoor flushing toilets!
- Shower facilities!
- Indoor seating for food and awards if needed (We will be utilizing both Watkins and Wilson Lodges)
- Parking is semi-limited (So we very much encourage car-pooling! We will be directing traffic the day of the race.)
We have merchandise awards provided by our sponsors for the following:
- Overall Female Half Marathon
- Overall Male Half Marathon
- Overall Female 5 Mile
- Overall Male 5 Mile
Any remaining awards will be handed out randomly. Must be present to receive awards,
