These are hard, graduate-level routes that will test you to the core, and they aren’t for beginners or casual participants.

Worlds End Ultramarathon

The Worlds End Ultramarathon is a challenging foot race that explores the Loyalsock Trail, Loyalsock State Forest and Worlds End State Park in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania. The routes are largely rugged, scenic-dense single-track trails with some fairly remote sections, several waterfalls and multiple vistas of the beautiful Endless Mountains. This is not a beginner-level ultra and participation in the race should not be taken lightly. As John Young writes in Hike Pennsylvania, “If you want to do some hiking in the Worlds End region, you should know that hiking here means climbing”.

Rothrock Trail Challenge

A 17+ mile race through Rothrock forest on fairly rocky to very rocky terrain and includes both a steep boulder scramble and a cliff descent. Don't expect to run fast, even on the flat parts of this course as the rocky terrain will slow even the fastest trail runner. Stay alert or you'll surely catch a toe and be rolling in the dirt.

The Dam Half

A challenging half-marathon trail race complete with downed trees, rocks, muddy surfaces, tree stumps and roots, and wild forest creatures, the race known as The Dam Half gets its name from the dam in the center of R.B. Winter State Park where the race takes place. The terrain for the course is a variety of single- and double-track trails through the park and the nearby environs, and offers a daunting challenge for runners at all skill levels -- but also views of the gorgeous scenery of R.B. Winter park.

Worlds End Fall Classic

A new take on the popular Worlds End Ultramarathon but for the less crazy folk who want to enjoy the Worlds End area and not run for 19 hours in one go. This course is crafted not as a rehashed and shortened version of the ultra course but as a brand new course with unused trails and rarely seen gems. Jam packed with as much eye candy, rocks and views as possible in a half marathon and we think we achieved a fantastic course with plenty of diversity and fun.
