Bring your sense of adventure and "get squatchy" with us at the Summer Sasquatch 50k, 20 & 10M at Salt Fork State Park, Ohio's largest park and home of Ohio's largest creature. This challenging race will test your limits with a 10.4-mile loop course over the rolling hills of the park's hiking and bridle trails. Yes, there will be mud, and this course is known for eating trail shoes! Participate on Saturday AND Sunday and get 50% off the Sunday 10 Miler.


Salt Fork Lake provides a serene backdrop as you conquer this beastly course. With three distances to choose from, there's something for everyone at Summer Sasquatch. For the brave and determined, the 50k distance will take you through three loops, with over 4,000 feet of elevation gain. The 20-mile option provides a slightly less grueling two loop challenge, and the 10-mile event is perfect for those seeking a shorter but still exhilarating race. Hikers are welcome to join in on the fun! Click here to view the Summer Sasquatch course maps.


Salt Fork Lodge offers great rooms at reasonable prices. Enjoy a meal in the restaurant, relax in the indoor/outdoor pool, and have some fun in the game room and outdoors. To get the special discount rate, you must call the reservation line at 740-435-9000 and request a room under the Western Reserve Racing Summer Sasquatch block. A deposit is due at the time the reservation is made, and the deposit is fully refundable up to 72 hours prior to arrival.
