The ultra marathon course starts out on the towpath in front of Wide Water's Marina located on the south side of the canal. The course is a 25-mile "out and back" loop. 100-mile racers must complete four loops and the 50-mile participants must complete two loops. All three aid stations will be stocked with a wide variety of food and cold beverages.  We truly offer a feast at The Beast!
*Due to risks involved with this race we require all 100-mile participants to have completed at least one official 50-mile race. (This will be cross checked with Ultra SignUp's extensive database)

The Starting Line:

The race will start at the beginning of the towpath as shown on the map below. The first mile of the race is on a paved trail. After you cross the bridge on the North side of the canal you will be on a very racer friendly crushed cinder surface. While trail shoes aren't necessary, some find the use of gaiters helpful.
