Ultras are what we love!
Wawayanda Ultra is the newest race by a joint effort, Happily Running and Redpoint Productions. Check out some of our other races in 2022 as well! 2022 RACES!
The course is an awesome mix of soft wooded trails, wooden bridges, gravel and rocks. It winds through the hills of Northern Jersey with no non-park road crossings! The routes are a mix of 2 loops, South Loop = 13 miles and the North Loop = 5miles. Full loop totalling 18 miles.
Half Marathon is: Route 1 & Route 2 (South Loop only)
50K is: Routes 1,2,1,3 (South Loop, followed by Full 18 Mile Loop)
50Mile is: Routes 1,2,1,3,1,3 (South Loop, followed by 2 Full 18 Mile Loops)
There are 3 aid stations: Maraschino, Dam Straight and Main Event.
The Half will visit 1 AS, 50K will have 5 and the 50 Mile will visit 8.
Amazing volunteers will treat you to some great food at each of the stations. We typically like to have Skratch at our events for a drink. There will be the normal ultra running staples, like PB&J, pretzels, chips, some candy and fruit... and of course broth and perogies, but as the day goes on we'll bring in some other things like pizza and burgers, even been known to find some bacon ... we do take requests and are happy to try to accommodate as best we can.
