2022 RACE UPDATE!

We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we run the Laurel Highlands Ultra is the original homelands of the Monongahela, Shawnee and other nomadic nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land. Laurel Highlands welcomes racers of every race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics or disability.

The races start in Ohiopyle, PA, with the 70.5 mile individual and 70.5 relay races running the entire length of the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail to Rt 56 in Seward, PA. The 50K races finishing at the 31 mile point near the intersection of Route 31. All of the races are point-to-point.
The novel coronavirus “COVID-19” continues to impact our communities and officials continue to take important steps to ensure public safety. We here at Redpoint Productions regularly monitor the situation and strive to take the best path forward to keep all racers and community members safe.
The health of our participants, spectators, partners and employees is our top priority and we are committed to providing the safest environment for all who attend the event.
We have worked very closely with the Pennsylvania DCNR and local officials to comply with all public health suggestions. Currently we do not expect any restrictions on the race format, but i is possible that modifications will take place as conditions change. We will keep you updated as we get closer to the event date.
We hope to see you out there on June 11th! Thank you and stay safe!
