The 2019 Ray’s Trail Race 50k will be held on Saturday, September 28th at 9am. In addition to the 50k we will be hosting a 10-miler, possibly a 5k, and the Rucktoberfest Relays (40 miles / team). The race will feature three loops that total a little over ten miles so the 50k participants will run each loop three times.
Some quick race info:
-There will be portajohns located near the start / finish for every loop.
-Each of the three loops are short (3-4 miles) so there will only be one aid station at the start / finish line.
-Each mile of the course averages 140-200 feet of climbing. While this is a lot less than you get with some mountainous races the elevation is deceivingly relentless. Runners swear it is all uphill….which is impossible. It just feels like it is all uphill.
-There is an indoor restroom / changing room. As of right now there is only a cold shower but we hope to have that changed by September 2019.
-Runners will have space to setup a tent / personal aid station area near the course. We have a lot of green space so there is plenty of room for things like that (within reason…if you bring a giant inflatable pub that would be an issue unless the race director gets to drink for free).
-With the short loops this is spectator friendly course. There is not a lot for people to do other than spectate the race but you do see people every 3-4 miles!
-Soups, drinks, beer, and other post-race food will be served.
-While are races are small we often get some very good runners so there is a good bit of competition.
