For 2019 we will celebrate the fortieth running of the Laurel Highlands Ultra. The race will continue to be dedicated to Paul Butchko, who along with his brother Joe, founded the Laurel Highlands Trail Race four decades ago. Paul's unexpected death in 2017 was truly a sad day for our trail family. Paul and his extended family have been running and volunteering at the race every year. For those of you that have had the pleasure of meeting Paul, you know he will be sorely missed.
Each year, proceeds from the race are donated to the Laurel Highlands Trail through the Pennsylavania Parks and Forest Foundation. The money donated goes directly to the trail to provide material and services for maintenance. Future donations from the race will be made in Paul Butchko's name as a tribute to Paul's love of the trail.
