The course starts out on the towpath in front of Wide Water's Marina located on the south side of the canal. The course is a 25-mile "out and back" loop. 100-mile racers must complete four loops and the 50-mile participants must complete two loops. All three aid stations will be stocked with a wide variety of food and cold beverages. We truly offer a feast at The Beast!
*Due to risks involved with this race we require all 100-mile participants to have completed at least one official 50-mile race. (This will be cross checked with Ultra SignUp's extensive database)
Three wonderful Aid stations all for you .We will have Hylē Hydration as our hydration fuel and Huma Gels. Everything else varies over the weekend. There will be the normal ultra running staples, like PB&J, pretzels, chips, some candy and fruit... and of course broth and perogies, but as the day goes on we'll bring in some other things like pizza and burgers, even been known to find some hot dogs ... we do take requests and are happy to try to accommodate all as best we can. We have been trying to accommodate the growing Vegan/ GF community of runners as well.
All crew and pacer actions are the runner's responsibility. Runners must make sure their crew knows the rules and if they are broken it can mean a DQ and or course removal of runner and crew.
