The Batona 50 is a point-to-point trail race along the entire length of the Batona Trail in the beautiful New Jersey Pine Barrens. The course is 53.4 miles long, which is the full distance of the Batona Trail, starting at Ong’s Hat and finishing at Bass River. We will also host a 50k option that ends at Batsto Village. The entire trail is marked with pink blazes as it traverses vast tracts of the Pinelands National Reserve. The trail crosses various roads at different points along the way, and we will have car support at some of these locations.

The Pinelands is one of New Jersey’s most beautiful treasures and is home to many rare and endangered plants including swamp pink, pitcher plants, and many species of orchids. We are lucky to be able to explore such a beautiful landscape on foot (and in our home state!), so please stay on the trail to minimize our impact.
