Race Details

The Algonquin 50k:

Date: February 10th 2018

Time: 7:30am

Distance: 50k, 31 miles

Cutoff: The final cutoff time for this event is 8 hours (3:30pm) Runners will be expected to carry the slowest pace possible throughout the entire course. If a runner falls significantly behind pace, The Algonquin Crew reserves the right to pull a runner from the race at anytime and anywhere on the course.

The Course will be a modified out and back, the middle portion will be different going up and returning. This course is 95% trails. Some of the trails are single track and some are wider horse trails. It is completely flat, which should make for a relatively fast 50k. There are a few miles that are sandy and some points there might be water covering the trail. The race will begin and end at Milburn Landing area of The Pocomoke River State Park.

There will be well-stocked aid stations every five to six miles with water, electrolyte drink, soda, boiled potatoes, something sweet and something salty.

Be prepared for cold, rain, snow, mud and possible frozen conditions. There will be a few road crossings, be aware. Most crossings will have volunteers and the traffic is minimal to nonexistent in the area during February. Horses will follow the last runners to ensure a safe return to the finish line.

There is no rain date. We will run in the rain, snow, and sleet.
Only a "force majeure" which makes EMS, Aid stations and support staff unable to function will be cause for cancellation. In the event of a cancellation, no refunds or credits will be applied to future events.

Swag will include Shirts, Winter Hats, and those oval stickers everyone loves.
Handmade local Ceramic Mugs will be given to all the finishers....

Awards for the top 3 men and top 3 women... And I mean big trophies!

The Algonquin 50k is a community-based, eco-friendly, volunteer supported, non-profit event whose mission is to promote, maintain, increase trails on Delmarva. We work closely with Maryland Parks and Maryland Forest to provide a safe, fun, exciting race.
