Located in beautiful Brookfield New York, deep in the woods of the Charles E Baker State Forest, participants will complete one of two races, the 15k fun run/walk or the 50k Ultra Marathon.
Race Details: 15k Fun Run/Walk
This race traverses a challenging 15k loop through a mix of truck trails and horse trails. This race is family friendly and can be walked or ran. Think of it as a day hike or a competitive run, you choose.
Race Details: 50k Ultra Marathon
This race traverses 50k through truck and horse trails covering 4,600+ feet of vertical gain. The course is broken into 3 loops allowing participants to refuel each lap or in the event they no longer choose to go on, are able to safely quit. At the end of each loop you must ensure a race volunteer has marked you down for completing your loop.
This race has a 9 hour cut off.
Course Maps/Parking: Released Shortly
The State lands can be tricky to navigate. We will have good signage directing you to parking and through the entire course.
Registration Fee: $40 per runner. In addition to the event fee we ask all participants to purchase a book for an elementary school child. You can hand these in at the start line.
Arrival/Sign in: 7:30 AM (please be on time)
Race Start Time: 8:30 AM
Awards: 5:30 PM followed by a campfire and social. Bring your own food and drinks.
One (1) porta potty will be located in the Parking Lot (Truck Trail 14, fire tower north lot)
One (1) located at the finish line (Woodland pond)
These vary but we recommend trail running shoes or hiking boots (for walkers). A change of socks is not a bad idea either.

This race is designed to be fun, build community, and test your individual limits. At the end of the day, the sense of accomplishment you get from crossing the finish line is like no other. This being the first annual Brookfield Classic, you will be able to set an individual benchmark to compare to for future performances. There are many people in this world with unfortunate circumstances unable to participate in an event like this. If you are lucky enough to have a healthy body, and a good life, complete this race for no other reason than "because you can".
No matter if your goal is to casually hike the 15k or attempt to win the Ultra Marathon, you will be a better person at the end.
