A Resurrection

The Virgil Crest Ultras. Although bringing you an updated course for 2021, Virgil retains the original format of beautiful forest, big climbs and descents, and a course configuration conducive to connection. With an elevation gain upwards of 22,000' for the 100, and ratio'd for the other distances, the course will challenge the toughest and most seasoned trail vets. It still Aint for Sissies. 

A distinction of Virgil though, is that the terrain may be more runnable than nearly any other northeast event of its elevation grade. That is, the course isn't a barrage of rocks and technical footing. If your quads, calves, and mind can handle it, you can run it. With liberal cut-offs, despite the elevation metrics, first-timers are just as likely to reach the finish as seasoned vets. Commit yourself to it, hang in there when the miles get rough, and 100 milers, just make it to sunrise.
This may be a one-year return for all those who feel they needed one more shot. So, if you ever wished you'd run, or not quit, here's your shot. It'll be good to have you.
