A 40 mile trail ultra using both sides of the famous gorge in Letchworth State Park. An all trail event, you will traverse single track, fields, foot bridges and bridle paths. You will experience beautiful vistas, quad busting climbs, and most importantly a grass roots, community friendly event.

In the style of old school ultras, this race comes with a need for self sufficient runners – We have 5 fully stocked aid stations on the course spread out among the 40 miles. Be prepared to spend up to 8-9 miles between some of the aid stations in some remote sections of trail.
