The course is a 50K loop run mostly on the single-track Gerard hiking trail (GHT) of Oil Creek State Park. Short sections of dirt road and asphalt. There is a short 1.25 mile asphalt section between race HQ at Titusville Middle School (TMS) and the park.

100K & 100 mile trail races both end at 1 PM on Sunday Oct 17, 2010

50K trail race ends at midnight on Saturday Oct 16, 2010

Showers available to runners, pacers and crew for a nominal $5 fee to help with custodial coverage race weekend - the school would not be available as our race HQ if they were not giving up their weekend for this event so be sure to thank them race weekend!

Free tenting in the lawn next to the TMS parking lot and pitching a sleeping bag / air mattress on the gymnasium floor are two inexpensive options for lodging.

LEAVE NO TRACE - on the trail in the park (no littering), in the lawn next to the parking lot while tenting, and the middle school itself - please remove muddy shoes at your car or tent before showering.

Wild & tough 1860's oil boom era policies:
No refunds, no credit toward next year's race, no changing of distances. If you don't finish the distance you signed up for it is a DNF. "Strike oil or move on!"
