The rugged trail race you know and love is back for its 12th year in 2024! Participants can choose from a 5K, 10K or 50K option. All courses are technical trails through a beautiful old-growth forest with spectacular scenery.


The 5K will feature a course that is almost entirely on trail. The 10K course includes a flat, fast section to feature the beautiful Wetlands trail as you run past fields and streams. Don't worry, you'll still get your 3 steep climbs, technical descents and stunning sights.


For those who really want a challenge, register for the 50K. This gnarly and beautiful course will be 5 loops on the 10K course, totaling 7,000+ feet of elevation gain. Want to read more about the 50K (or any of the races, really)? Check out this review by Inaugural Overall Winner Cole Crosby


All three courses will throw a little bit of everything at you: steep climbs, fast runnable single track, and technical descents. This event is true PA trail running.


This race is to benefit the Friends of Salt Springs Park, which is an entirely volunteer-run entity (the only State Park run by volunteers in PA!), to help maintain and conserve the beautiful trails we get to spend the day on. Consider adding a donation!


Stick around after your race to enjoy food, beverages and camaraderie. More details to come.


All races will be chip timed by Falcon Race Timing.


Deadline to be guaranteed a shirt is TUESDAY, AUGUST 13, 2024. Limited sizes will be available for purchase the day of.

50K Details
There will be a fully stocked aid station at the start of each loop (approximately every 6.5 miles). Any fueling or nutrition outside of that or needed on course will need to be carried with you.


No pacers. Poles are ok but not necessary.


You will be able to leave any personal items/drop bag at the aid station area.


This is not a beginner friendly 50K, and this is not a lenient cutoff. Runners must start their last lap no later than 4:00 pm. If you fail to start your last loop by 4:00 pm you will not be allowed back out onto the course.


The 50K course cutoff is 6:30 pm sharp.
