Registration is available for 4-person and 8-person relay teams for the 100 miles.
Based at Canal Fulton’s St. Helena Park, the course is flat and fast … on the Olde Muskingum and Ralph Regula Towpath Trails. There’s plenty of shade and the scenery is beautiful. Run/walk along the Tuscarawas River and the Ohio Erie Canal.
Plenty of aid support will be stationed on the course, including a super aid station in the park pavilion.
The Friday evening prior to the event features a social gathering. Camping is welcome and FREE! (Please, no digging holes and building individual fires.)
What you get:
Custom commemorative tech shirt
100 mile, 50/50 and 100k finishers receive a belt buckle medal
50 mile, 50k and relay team members receive custom finisher medals
All participants receive a swag bag
Hot tubs and a swimming pool!
All the food, water, sport drink you need
Course marshals and park rangers positioned throughout for your safety
The 5-mile loop course is entirely on crushed limestone trails, except for the two ends where you will use the berm of Butterbridge and Cherry Street to cross from one trail to the other. The trails are almost completely flat. Mile markers will be placed on the course so you know where you are at all times.
The trails are not completely closed, so you will have to share the space with other runners, walkers and cyclers. Please be aware of those around you.
When you register, we will ask for the distance you intend to complete. This is for our planning purposes, but you are not obligated to complete your distance and stop, nor does it prohibit you from completing a shorter distance than you originally intend.
You will receive the award for the distance you complete. For example, if you registered to complete 50K and you want to keep going and do 50 miles, you will receive the award for what you accomplish.
Each competitor will receive a race bib with a disposable electronic chip attached to it. The bib must be visible at all times in order for the timing equipment to read it. Each time you cross the strip, your time and distance will be transmitted to a video screen that you will see a few yards past the strip. You and your friends will also be able to track your process on a mobile app.
Once you have completed your distance, you may leave the course.
You may also stop and rest any time you want, provided you re-enter the course at the exact point you left it.
You are also permitted to leave the area and return. Just please notify a volunteer of your intentions.
