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.
The Pagoda Pacers have years of experience organizing first class trail races and can draw from over 100 members who have completed an ultra. If you have any questions about our race or ultra running in general , please don't hesitate to contact us
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.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Mike and Stephan directing the race, we will have more swag than usual this year. Your goodie bag will contain a long sleeve orange shirt (perfect for hunting season), a 1/4 zip sweater and a tech hat. All finisher will also receive a fully zippered running top.
