The 50K course begins inside Shepherd Lake Recreation Area Parking lot.  The course will be marked along blazed trail ways using survey tape to direct you on the correct path.  Water/aid points on course.  More details below on Aid.  There is approximately 5000' of elevation gain over the entire 50km. 

Walkers WILL NOT finish the 50K course in under the time limit of 9 hours.  Walkers are welcome to compete in the friendlier 7 Mile fun run or the 25 km course.

This course will be challenging but not impossible.  The entire course will be well marked on currently blazed paths and fire roads through out Ringwood State Park.  All photos on this site and Facebook are taken from the course.  There are rocks on almost every part of the entire course.  Some parts are big rocks while some parts are almost crushed gravel.  There are parts that are soft dirt or paved roads.  The course is not easy.  It is on single track paths that are constantly changing.
