About the Race

Beautiful fall foliage (usually!), mostly rolling hills on paved roads, and about 2 miles of runnable trail per each 25k loop.
There are two manned aid stations, one at the start/finish (Wolfe's Neck Farm) and one at Crystal Spring Farm. These manned aid stations are the relay exchanges for any relay runners. There is an unattended aid station near the entrance to BTLT's Chase Reserve - about 3.1mi from the start/finish area. There are no cups at any aid station - please carry your own

New for 2023, awards will be given to the top two overall male, female, and non-binary finishers in the 25K, 50K, and 50 Miler in the solo events. If there is an event that does not have enough entrants to fulfill all of the award slots, the extra pies will be available for sale with the proceeds being donated back to the race beneficiaries (Wolfes Neck Center & Brunswick-Topham Land Trust). Non-binary runners - once you've picked your gender, a division question will pop up - answers to the division question will be ignored.

Course Marking notes

On the roads:
The road portion of the course (that's from the start to Crystal Spring Farm) is marked with Eco Friendly paint and repurposed corrugated plastic signs with arrows. Runners will run into traffic as they would if out on a training run.

On the trails:
The trail portion of the course (that's on the Crystal Spring Farm property) is marked with pin flags and extra signage with arrows on the lollipop loop to ensure runners do not get confused with this section.


Race Day Registration/Bib Pickup:

Race day registration starts at 6 a.m., at Wolfe's Neck Farm for all racers, including all relay team members. Please bring an ID. If you plan to register on race day be sure to allow yourself 30-45 minutes to register, use the bathroom, etc. prior to your race start time.

Do you have any friends or family that would like to volunteer? We would love to have them join us! Please send us a message thru here or FB!



New for 2023, only 50mi racers may have a pacer - pacers are only allowed for the 3rd & final lap. Pacers will need to sign a waiver on race day. Pacers will need to sign the waiver & get their pacer bib when their runner picks up their bib.

New for 2023: Adaptive athletes and athletes with disabilities may have a guide with them for the entire race as needed. Guides will need to sign a waiver on race day. Due to the open roads and narrow trails/trails surface at Crystal Springs Farm, wheelchair/handcycle racers are not permitted. Guides will need to sign the waiver & get their guide bib when their runner picks up their bib.
