One Darn Tough Mountain Race...
The Green Monster is a trail challenge designed for both runners and hikers of all ages offering a 25k, 50k, and recently improved 15k option - all of which are sponsored by Darn Tough Vermont. This course is nestled in the mountains of the Tioga State Forest just North of the PA Grand Canyon and is the mission of the Tyoga Running Club to showcase the beauty and difficulty of this terrain. You will be confronted with challenging single track trails, steep climbs, and technical descents all of which are very unforgiving. You will also find several dicey stream crossings and an occasional log in which you will have to hurdle. This course is not for the faint of heart and will challenge the most conditioned athlete!
**UPDATE FOR 2020**
The Green Monster has addended our REFUND POLICY to accommodate for the uncertain times, as follows;
We will offer a 100% REFUND in the event the race is cancelled due to factors outside of our control (ie: Covid, Government mandates)
We will offer a 100% REFUND for registered participants whom need to cancel PRIOR to online registration ending on September 30th 2020 at 11:59 pm. If you decide to bail at any point after that date, NO REFUND will be available.
Worth noting: the race this year is limited to 200 RUNNERS and will likely reach capacity long before online registration closes in September! In the event it does, a wait-list will be generated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
