The Blues Cruise 50K Trail Ultra race is suitable for first time ultra runners as well as seasoned runners. We are able to reach this goal by having a course that is very runnable, not too technical, but challenging enough to make it interesting for everyone. Our themed aid stations are well stocked and serviced by local (ultra) runners.

Stephan Weiss & Mike Yoder are supported by the Pagoda Pacers, a local (ultra) running club with more then 500 members.

We would like to welcome Bob Fisher as a new sponsor for the Blues Cruise. They will provide a truck to operate the gear drop. Thank you for your support.

Once again the course will consist of a giant 31 Mile loop around the lake featuring 95% trail. Our race is one of the few races, where you won't run a mile twice. This is only possible due to the great support of the Pacoda Pacers and the Army Corps of Engineers.

New for 2017 , we present the black and red edition. All the swag will be black with red logo. In lieu of a medal we will give you a finisher hoodie. You also get a long sleeve tech-shirt and a cap. We give you over 50% of your entry fee back in high quality swag. This is only possible due to the support of the Pagoda Pacers, we put thousands of volunteer hours into this race.
