The 5th annual WC-50 is a multi-lap ultramarathon spanning throughout the USNWC trail system featuring both a 50k and 50-mile option. For the first time ultra-competitor or those hoping to sharpen their skills at a distance beyond the standard marathon, the 50k offers three 10ish mile loops.  The 50k course provides a mix of challenging single-track climbs and rolling riverside trails, offering something for runners of all levels. For the more seasoned ultra-runner or those looking to challenge themselves on a more challenging course, the 50 mile route focuses on increased elevation technical difficulty resulting in three 17-ish mile loops. Both distances feature loops that will start and finish at the friendly confines of the Pump House Biergarten centrally located within the USNWC.
