Saturday, August 27, is the 18th annual Baker Trail UltraChallenge, a 50-mile race that can be tackled solo or as part of a relay team.

Whether you're registered for the race or just thinking about it, join us on Friday, July 22, for an all-paces training run.  We’ll cover the second 15 miles of this year’s course, complete with an aid station (same location as race day) to help you fine-tune your hydration and nutrition strategies plus familiarize you with the course.  This event is free and open to the public.

The game plan for Friday, July 22nd:  we will meet here (Dutch Run Rd) at 7:30 a.m. and leave a vehicle (or two), then carpool to the starting point: here (Garrets Run Rd). There may or may not be cell phone service. Consider using the 'offline' capabilities of google maps to ensure you successfully arrive at the meeting point or considering printing out a hard-copy of directions.  

The aid station chart on the Participant Page shows our starting point as "Garrets Run Rd" and our finish point as "Dutch Run Road." Also on this page you'll find details regarding the course (dirt road vs. trail) and elevation information (some steep climbs!)
