***IMPORTANT***. Dear Friends: It is with sad news that I must cancel this year’s BD event. The storm that came thru Elk County this week has significantly impacted the BD course. I’ve attached a few (of many) pics that show the damage. This is the Devils Den Loop. As you can see, it is completely demolished/unrecognizable. With only 2 months out, and the extent of the damage, it just isn’t feasible to take any other decision. For those that already registered, I will be working to fully refund you. Please be patient with me as I work thru this. I’m so sorry for the bad news, and I really appreciate that you wanted to be a part of our event.

Many Thanks,

Jason (Race Director) 🤘🏻😢🤘🏻

Hey All....Jason (RD) here... So, here's the changes for this year: The 20-mile event has become a GINORMOUS undertaking. Without getting into all the details, I really needed to change the event to a "long" Half-Marathon distance (13-14'ish miles). The elevation gain is over 2,700ft, and the course will keep you on many of the same "loops" as you've done in the past. Plus, we will run it in the opposite direction from the "historical" route. Basically, all of the Island Run loop is cut out. This change will help with all the planning and logistics. I'm pretty excited about the change (I was out on this course last weekend), and I think this course is still an awesome challenge. I fully realize that we may lose some historical “20 Mile” participants...but I believe that there will be new participants who can manage this distance better as well. I'm very confident that you will continue to love the BD just as you have over the years, and I thank each and every one of you (runners, volunteers, sponsors) for all the support over the years. Check out our new website as well (new course map, elevation details, etc..are all on the new site), and I hope to have registration open up in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!! www.elkcountyboulderdash.com

***PLEASE READ***

A friendly REMINDER to State Game Lands Users (hikers, trail runners, etc.):

According to the PA Game Commission Rules and Regulations "Game Lands Users may not, except on Sundays, be present on State Game Lands from November 15 to December 15, inclusive when not engaged in lawful hunting or trapping activities, and fail to wear a minimum of 250 square inches of florescent orange material on the head, chest and back combined, or in lieu thereof, a hat of the same colored material. Orange must be visible from 360 degrees."

So, this means that even if you are not hunting, you are required to wear 250 square inches of orange and/or an orange hat. Often times, hikers and trail runners overlook this and assume that because they are wearing something bright colored, they are safe. Although more bright colors are better for safety, a bright pink or bright yellow jacket doesn't meet the Game Commission requirements. Be safe, be seen, have fun.
