A pre-race dinner for all runners is included in the race entry fee. Dinner will be served from 4-8 at the Camp Tuscazoar Dining Hall. Additional meals may be purchased at the door for family and crew for an additional cost.
Along the course there will be five aid stations. All will be over stocked with both cold and hot food and snacks as well as water, soda, and electrolyte drinks.
(See below for specifics of each Aid Station.)
Before the race runners will be able to place Drop Bags in designated areas.
One will be labeled “Staying Here.” These bags will remain at the start/finish area for runners to have access to as they complete each loop.
There will be another place labeled “Going to 800 Aidstation.” These drop bags will be taken to the RT 800 aid station shortly after the start of the race. This aid station is at the beginning and end of the flat towpath section and provides an ideal place for runners to access items for the transition from flat towpath to the technical trails and hills of Camp Tuscazoar.
Pacers will only be allowed for the 100-mile distance. No pacers allowed before mile 50. Only one pacer at a time per entrant. Pacers may not mule/carry supplies for their runner. All pacers must sign a liability waiver. All pacers must wear a “pacer” bib while with their runner. Pacers are allowed to help themselves to any food and beverages at aid stations while they are pacing.
Both races will start and finish in front of the Camp Tuscazoar Dining Hall. This will also serve as the main hub of the race. The Main Aid Station will be located here where you can see your runner at miles 25, 50, 75, and Finish! This will be a great area for your crew to hang out. We will have music playing and a fire going all night. There are also restrooms located in this area.
CUT OFF TIME
There is a 32-hour time limit for the 100-mile race, and 30 hours for the 50-mile, and 29 hours for the 25-mile. All runners must start their last loop by 7:00am on Sunday morning, September 6, 2020.

Camp Tuscazoar is a nearly 100-year old Boy Scout camp. They have many accommodations to fit your needs. Plenty of primitive camping is located throughout the camp in different forms from tents, adirondack shelters, and campers/RVs, both with and without hookups. They also offer bunkhouse style cabins with beds that can be purchased per bed and a few cabins that could fit your whole crew. Please contact Camp Tuscazoar directly to make reservations.
