The Blues Cruise 50K Trail Ultramarathon is suitable for first time ultra runners as well as seasoned runners. The 31-mile loop is very runnable, with a varied terrain that includes fields, rolling hills, single track and less than .5 miles of public roadway. The “ski Slope” is the only major climb (240 feet in vertical accent). In 2023 we have added (1) minor water crossing). Our themed aid stations are well stocked and serviced by local (ultra) runners. Blues Cruise is possible due to the approval and assistance of the Army Corps of Engineers.
Local time: 4:45 AM
