Get ready for a beautiful challenge.  Runners start each 15.5 mile loop with a mile-long climb to the summit of Bradbury Mountain followed by a gauntlet of great Maine singletrack, journeying over Tryon Mountain, Chandler Brook, and back into Bradbury Mountain State Park.  The course has tough hills, rocks, roots, and very little flat including a ¼ mile of paved road and 1 mile of dirt road.  With the fall foliage at it’s peak, there are sure to be many fantastic vistas along the route.  Be sure to check out our website for a more detailed description, including a slideshow of the course!

The 50 Mile Punisher probably isn’t for first timers - entrants will run a 3.5 mile lap of Bradbury Mountain and then complete 3 laps of the 15.5 mile course.  Consider the 50K Pounder as a still ambitious alternative - 2 laps of the same 15.5 mile course.  The courses themselves are tough, but there are also strict cutoffs: 12.5 hours for the Punisher, 9 for the Pounder.  Headlamps will be required at the 50 mile start.
