Finish closes at 7:30 PM for all courses.
Run one big road loop around the most beautiful Finger Lake in Western New York. The course is mostly flat to rolling roads with several major climbs, including the locally famous Bopple Hill.
Run point-to-point over the final 31 miles of the 50-mile route. With significantly less climbing and descending than the first 19 miles of the 50-mile route, the 50K is more friendly for first-time ultra runners and a logical step up from the marathon.
Run point-to-point over the final 14.5 miles of the 50 Mile/50 Km route after running short out-and-back starting on and using South Lake road. The time limit is 6 1/2 hours. The minimum average speed to complete the 25Km race is 2.07 miles per hour or 25 minutes per mile. Please note that the 25Km race does not allow pacers.
WARNING: MiniCan 25Km event may be canceled if there are fewer than 12 participants registered within less than a month before the race.
