53.1KM Ultra

The ultra ULTRA Trail Race.  All ultra runs will seem “cute” after this.  But, ya, we think you are strong enough to do this.

Gaining over 9000+ft in Elevation, this is an event that will challenge the body & spirit. (too far? 22 miler & 11 miler info)

      • There will be check stations throughout the course.  This is both for your safety and to mark cutoff times.  Registrants will be emailed cutoff times as the race gets closer.  But simply put, if you do not complete 2 laps in 6.5 hours (22 miles) then you will not be allowed to go the 3rd lap.  There will be other checkpoints as well.   This is NOT because we want to ruin your experience.  When it starts to get dark on Jay Peak, it gets dark FAST.  Jay also borders vast wilderness.  You can easily get lost forever.  In 7 years, we have never lost a runner and do not plan on it now.  It is for your safety AS WELL AS our crew’s safety.  Thank you for understanding.
