This is the first year participants have an option of doing a 15 mile course or the traditional 24 mile course. Both will include the eponymous Boulder Field. This will appeal to a lot of people who will prefer to hike the course. This event is a ton of fun with as much camaraderie as I’ve experienced on any event. I encourage everyone of at least average trail conditioning to give this close consideration. We may get an Airbnb - afterparty!! To participate in this event you must register and pay the registration fee here: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=73559 The following is taken from the previous years posting. This is in Lock Haven, Pa --in between State College and Williamsport. You must arrive the night before. Favorites will be on display, such as the Boulderfield, Rote overlook, Gorge Trail, Kammerdiner, Goat Path, Zindell and some new sights. The traditional course is 24miles with about 5,200 feet elevation gain on one of the most beautiful courses in the east. The start finish is at the Castanea Township Fire Company picnic grounds. The fun begins on Friday night with a pre-race party and bag pick-up. You will get a hearty breakfast before the 7:00 a.m. start. After the Boulder Beast is done with you there will be exceptional post-race food and beer awaiting you. There are time checks along the way. After party last year was (chicken BBQ, potato salad, baked beans, Little Caesar's pizza, Nathan's hot dogs, New Trail beer.
End the weekend with a sprint!!! Join us for a quick-paced 7-8 mile hike. This will be a work out. We'll get in 4-5 hills, just for fun! The pace will be brisk and we won't stop much, if at all. Burn off some stress, and calories . If you're sick stay home . Be aware of others and distance yourselves. Bring water and proper gear . We like dogs but not on our hikes.
THIS IS A PLACEHOLDER ONLY. NOT OFFICIALLY A SCHEDULED HIKE. 13 miles hike through some rugged terrain. 6.5 miles each way through forest, hopefully up some logging roads - if we can find them. make no mistake - you will be going through brush and getting nicked up. IF we can find some old logging roads - we will use them - if not we are bushwhacking all the way. The Prize - a 70 foot waterfall /cascade on the side of the steep decline. BRING ROPE just in case. This is going to be a slow go, safety is very important. Only experienced hikers with bushwhacking experience will be chosen to attend this.
