For the second year in a row, we are looking to the move the needle with respect to increasing female registration. Over the past 15 years, this race has remained stagnant at an 80 / 20 ratio (men to women). Help us achieve gender parity and register TODAY!
The Baker Trail UltraChallenge is a 50-mile ultramarathon on the Baker Trail. Unlike the Rachel Carson Trail Challenge, this is a footrace; the “challenge” is for you or your relay team to win, or at least finish within 14 hours! The next UltraChallenge is set for Saturday, August 27, 2022. The race starts at 6:30 AM; the deadline for finishing is 8:30 PM. The finish line is near Smicksburg, PA. Individuals as well as relay teams of up to 5 members may register.
In 2021 the race traversed the Central section of the trail, the second leg in the three-leg series. In 2022 we’ll cover the South section. This is a point-to-point 50-mile course with nine aid stations, making it convenient (no need to schlepp a ton of water or food).
