This e-mail presents Glacier Ridge Trail Ultramarathons and Trail Race (GRT) committee’s final 2020 race update.
The GRT race committee has met and discussed the conditions under which the GRT could be held this year to provide safe conditions for our participants, volunteers and crew/support. We have also discussed COVID-19 safety measures with Pennsylvania DCNR and others at length and have come to the unfortunate decision that given the ever changing COVID-19 concerns, the GRT cannot be held safely in 2020. While we are saddened by this decision, we acknowledge that safety is the top priority that takes precedence over any other considerations. We could not tolerate even one COVID-19 infection resulting from our event.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 conditions throughout this fall and winter to assess when the GRT 2021 event would be possible.
We have currently closed the race registration and refunds through RunSignUp. Current registered participants will receive an e-mail that will include a choice to Defer Registration into our 2021 event or Receive a Full Race Fee Refund (minus RunSignUp fees). We ask that your response be provided by July 31, 2020; after which we will process all refund requests. Our waitlist will be maintained and those on the waitlist will be provided the initial opportunity for new registrations for the 2021 event.
The GRT offers four events from which participants can choose…
30K Trail Run / Endurance Hike: come out and give the trails a whirl!
50 Mile Ultramarathon
50 Mile 5-person Relay: have some fun with family/friends/running pals/corporate associates
The race courses (including 5-person relay) are out-and-back style courses. The 30K and 50K courses largely follow the blue-blazed Glacier Ridge/North Country Trail between in Moraine State Park and the Jennings Environmental Education Center near Slippery Rock, PA. The Glacier Ridge Trail is a local designation for that part of the more extensive North Country Trail system that passes through Moraine State Park.
