A June 24th race date may seem like a long time from now, but if you want to test your mettle against one of the iconic ultras in New York State, you’ll need to register for the Finger Lakes 50s when it opens on January 1st. (And yeah, we know the race is normally the next weekend; someone scooped the campground reservation out from under us as soon as it came open.)
This race always sells out quickly, so be sure to register once the clock has ticked past midnight on New Year’s Eve and you’ve quaffed your final glass of champagne. That way, you can get up on New Year’s Day and start logging the miles you’ll need to run 25K, 50K, or 50 miles in the scenic Hector National Forest in June.
Don’t let the cows out!
