We're super excited to be on the LHHT in the Fall. A throwback to 2020, but without the masks!

The Inaugural LHU Fall Classic will be the first ever REVERSE 50K! Starting at Mile 31 (Rt 31) and ending in Ohiopyle. Since we won't be finishing at a remote trailhead, it should give us the chance to have a fun post race party in Ohiopyle.

BENEFITTING THE Pennsylvania Parks & Forest Foundation!

None of this would be possible without the hard work of the PPFF, Friends Group, RidgeRunners and everyone who gives back to the trails in Western PA! Year-round maintenance and care is required to keep this trail amazing.

A point to point race on the gorgeous Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail. Beginning in Hidden Valley / Somerset just off Rt 31 heading South on the LHHT to its terminus in Ohiopyle, PA.

The route is run entirely on the LHHT and has over 4,700 elevation ascent and 6,200 elevation descent. You'll be counting your way down from Mile Marker 31 to 0 and finishing just beyond the "gate" on Garrett Rd


Aid Stations confirmed at course mile 5.6 (Mile Marker 26), mile12.5 (mile marker 19), and mile 19.5 (mile marker 11), & Mile 24 potentially. All will be fully stocked and staffed.

We take pride in our aid stations and can get you what you need. And we take requests when you register! Our established community of amazing volunteers and staff will be ready for you. Skratch is typically our electrolyte hydration. We'll have a lot of AS staples, like fruit, pb&j, potatoes, pretzels, chips, and some candy. And we often throw in some broth, bacon, quesadillas and pierogies. Vegan and GF options available in food, gels, starches and more.


Spectators will have access to the aid stations at Miles 5.5, 9.5 and 19.5 to crew and cheer for racers

Pacers can join their racer only at Mile 19.5
