During this half or full trail marathon you can expect to enjoy some amazing wooded trails that you might not have experienced before. The course consists of a high percentage of rolling tree-covered single-track located mostly around the summit of Gannett Hill, the highest point in Ontario County. You will run on nearly every trail within Ontario County Park, as well as a few trail surprises. There will be rocks, roots, wooden bridges, and some awe-inspiring views. The Ontario Summit Trail Races will be capped at a maximum of 250 racers (individual events are not capped).
What to expect
Like any of Goose’s events, don’t expect to achieve a trail PR on this course. The Half-marathon course will consist of a full 13.1 miles of one-way running with no two-way traffic. The Marathon will be two loops of the half marathon course. The race course is incredibly spectator friendly, so expect to be cheered on by friends and family throughout the race, not just at the start and finish. We are excited to present these races at a great value of $40 for the half marathon distance and only $50 for the full marathon. Prices will increase by $10 after April 15, 2016.
Runners will be supported during the race with 3 fully-stocked aid stations, every 3-4 miles along the course, with water, electrolyte drinks, gels, salty snacks, ginger ale and Coke.
All participants will receive a gender-specific technical shirt and a generous post-race picnic banquet. Finishers will receive a custom finisher award.
A full course map and elevation profile are provided on Goose Adventue Racing’s website. Did you hear about the Gell Center Hill? We offer some serious elevation change on privately-owned trails for the mountain goats out there. Expect a few changes to the course to include a new trail and improve navigation!
