Before signing up.....we have a "zero tolerance" stance with registration. There are no refunds, deferrals, bib switches, or transfers of any sort. If you don't like our rules, PLEASE find another race. There are literally thousands of races out there. Our races aren't for everyone. Anyone contesting our rules throughout the year will automatically be banned from all PA Trail Dog events.
There are NO REFUNDS, NO DEFERRALS, NO BIB SWITCHES, NO TRANSFERS of any sort, and NO BANDITS for this event. PLEASE don't sign up if you don't like our rules.
Very important....the course is very remote and there are no parking areas whatsoever out there. And the mountain roads are very narrow. The ONLY accessible aid station is Hyner View State Park at mile 4. Please relay this to family and friends.
50K Qualifying Standards
This is not a beginner 50K and we expect ALL runners to finish in under 10 hours. Road races do not count as qualifiers as they have no relevance to this sport. Please put down a race and your time that shows you are capable of completing 31 miles in under 10 hours. During the race, runners not getting to the 25/50K intersection by 10:30am (mile 9) will automatically be directed onto the 25K course to finish. Mile 17.5 aid station at Dry Run Rd cut-off is 1pm. And Hyner Run SP aid station on the way back at mile 24 is 3pm.
