A new type of foot race. There is no course, no markings, you have a set of detailed trail maps, and a goal to bring back the most Vertical gain. A handful of base stations enable you to span multiple parks and 120+ trails in the rugged Appalachian mountains!
We are in the process of verifying with parks. We are looking into Frederick City Watershed, Cunningham Falls State Park, and Catoctin National Park, with a backup plan just over the border in PA.
For now, this is a date placeholder while we secure land permissions, website, and other aspects. Suffice it to say, we are working on it. A team of 10 rock-star volunteer / committee members have bought into this and are planning it together. We also have a handful of beta testers to test out these ideas in the flesh, beforehand - this entire concept is new and we wont leave anything up to chance. Contact us if you are interested to beta-test!
The event will provide premier maps, including GPS-verifying the hundreds of trails. You will likely get 5-10 pages of high-quality maps to break down the wilderness into sectors. The image on this page is a simple example of a zoomed-out version of one of these maps. The real maps will have much more information and be zoomed in considerably more.
