New! Baker Trail UltraChallenge!

A new 50-mile running event is set for the Baker Trail!

The Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy is pleased to announce a new trail event, the Baker Trail UltraChallenge. It's a 50-mile ultramarathon on the Baker Trail beginning at the northern trailhead (about 20 miles northeast of Clarion). It follows the trail south for 40 miles to Summerville, PA, then turns east off the trail to Brookville and ends at the Brookville YMCA. It starts at 6:30 AM and participants have until 8:30 PM, or 14 hours, to finish. It will take place on Saturday, August 27, 2005. Relay teams of up to 5 participants can register.

More information will be available on this site in May and registration will open in late May.

If you’re interested in helping organize it, please email or call Steve Mentzer at (412) 512-4544.
