WC-50

October 26 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm

The WC-50 is a multi-lap ultramarathon spanning the U.S. National Whitewater Center’s trail system featuring both a 50K and a 50 mile distance. For the first time ultra-competitor or those seeking to expand into something longer than the typical marathon distance, the 50K course offers three 10-ish mile loops providing a mix of challenging singletrack climbs and rolling riverside trails. For those looking for something beyond the 50K distance, the 50 mile route focuses on increased elevation and technicality through three 17-ish mile loops. Both race distances are equipped with multiple and fully stocked aid stations, easy drop-bag locations, access to hot showers, food, and activities for your supporting families at the USNWC’s 1,300 acre facility.
