About Our Event
The Regal Beagle Ultra is a 50k, 25k, and 5 mile course that highlights the best of the 404 acre Bath Nature Preserve and the 41 acre Bath Community Park . This loop course starts at the Bath Community Park and traverses wetlands, woodlands, and rolling hills. Terrain will be a mix of paved and gravel roads, and dirt and grass trails. The 50k will be six 5-ish mile loops and the 25k will be three 5-ish mile loops with 2 aid stations per loop. The race will be cupless so please remember to bring a handheld water bottle.
A portion of the proceeds from this year's race will benefit the Bath Nature Preserve and the University of Akron Field Station. Make sure you like and follow our Facebook Page

Covid 19 changes!
Due to Covid 19, we will have several changes this year. All participants and volunteers will have to wear a mask at the start line, at both aid stations, and any other time when in contact with others. We will have a staggered start, so your start time will be on the back of your bib. We are planning on starting 3 runners approximately every 1 minute. Packet pick up will be spread out through the week so we don't have a large crowd on race morning. Runners will need to wear a mask to packet pick up. Registration will close EARLY this year because of all the changes.
Local time: 5:30 AM
We are confident that the race will happen as planned on November 22. If the event cannot be held as scheduled, registrants will be given the option to defer to 2021 or use the race credit for another FGRC race (Mingo Madness, Crowell Hilaka).
