New Date! September 19, 2020
The Coronavirus threw a monkeywrench in our Spring plans for the 21st running of the Muddy Sneaker, but we don't give up that easily. We were able to secure a permit to hold the first, and possibly only, early Fall Sneaker. Mark you calendar for September 19, 2020. If you were already registered for the postponed April race, then you are already set to go. If you need to make any changes to your registration please use the Contact Us form.
The Muddy Sneaker is a twelve+ mile trail run in the Hi Tor Wildlife Management Area in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, southeast of Canandaigua Lake.
Established in 2000, the Sneaker has some of the most rapid elevation loss and gain of any trail run in the region. During the Muddy Sneaker you may encounter any or all of the following hazards: rocks, roots, snow, ice, crawling over logs, stream crossings, oversized chickens and other wild creatures. THIS IS NOT A PR COURSE! If however you want to test yourself against nature, the raw beauty of Hi Tor and your own will to finish this is the race for you. We will be registering 200 runners this year WITH NO WAITING LIST!!!!
Race start is at 9 a.m. and packet pick-up begins at 8 a.m.
Entry fee is $45 this year.
One dollar of every registration will be donated directly to the Finger Lakes Trail Conference to help protect, maintain, and foster responsible use of the trails we enjoy.
2020 Race Season Shirts
We are changing our approach to race shirts this year. Starting with the 2020 Muddy Sneaker (and our other trail races this year), you will NOT receive a race shirt as part of your registration fee. To compensate for this, we have dropped the price of each of our races by $5.00.
But what if you really want a shirt? We are offering a super nice and durable Patagonia T-shirt as an add-on purchase at any of our races. The shirt is a higher quality shirt than we have ever offered, and at a price lower than what you would pay at the store.
Add-on purchases can be made at the time of registration and will be available at packet pickup.
Local time: 5:01 AM
Plans change, so Goose Adventure Racing will provide withdrawal refunds on the following schedule;
- before March 30, 2020 – 50% refund
- No refunds for withdrawals after March 30.
NOTE: Refunds will only be for the race entrance fee; refunds will not include the Ultra Signup administration fee. There will be NO WAITLIST this year!
