Blades Road

This Event Took Place Sun. Mar 17, 2024

Green Trails for Miles

All the laurel, pine trees, & moss one can see will result in nothing less than a green occasion. Combat those blue feelings of waiting another 11 months for the Algonquin 50k by hopping over the Pocomoke River & running its baby brother. Grab the sword by the hilt & run it!

Very Important: Due to limited parking space on Blades Road & around the race location, please plan on carpooling.

FAQs -
How will the course be marked? Spray painted arrows on the ground, logs or sticks may also be used as arrows to direct you or block side trails, signs, caution tape low to the ground to "block" where you should not go, and small green construction flags on that right side of the trail.

What will happen if I can't finish?
Let a volunteer know, give them your bib, & check in with a race director at the finish area.

Lost and Found? Check eBay. Actually, just notify us afterwards. Do not leave anything on the trails. Any items not claimed in 30 days will be donated or thrown into a bonfire.

What if the race is cancelled? We plan to race in rain, snow, sleet &/or very cold/hot conditions. Only a force majeure which makes EMS, aid station & support staff unable to function & making it too dangerous to drive will be cause for cancellation. In the event of a cancellation, no refunds or credits will be applied to future events.

When & Where will the results be up? We will publish the results as soon as possible both on the FB page and on ultrasignup.com.

Is it true that some of the trails might have water on them? It's possible because there are sections of the trail that cross small creeks. However Algonquin's little brother is usually dry.
