Refreshments will be near the finish line starting at 1:00 pm
Please keep your own time and sign in at the top (past the aid station at the lookout) and at the finish to be included in the results. This is a run/walk but you are welcome to ride your bike if you wish. If you took a bib, you must sign out before you leave or we will think you are still out there and bill you $$$ for search and rescue.
The 50K course runs to the top of White Rock Mountain, then retraces back to the start. The course is run on well maintained forest road. Aid is set up approximately every 5 – 6 miles.

Cancellation Policy: We reserve the right to cancel the race due to inclement weather or unsafe road conditions. Both the condition/width of the roads and the snow height and ice will be taken into consideration when making the final decision. In other words, don’t go if the weather is bad! Remember this is for fun, fellowship and recreation.

This 50K is very challenging and not recommended for those who have not at least completed a marathon (or run 26 miles) recently. It is guaranteed to help work off those Christmas holiday pounds before the Valentine Candy arrives. J
Cyclists are always welcome to join us, although a road bike wouldn’t be recommend as there are plenty of rocks on the dirt road. Hope to see you there!
