The Feral Hog 50k is a one loop course traversing the backpack and perimeter trails of East Fork State Park. The majority of this course is on trails that were first blazed by a man training to traverse the world on foot, Steve Newman, aka the World Walker.
This course has it all! While challenging, it is still an obtainable first ultra as there will be plenty of aid stations and a generous cut-off time. The terrain will also provide a nice variety of challenges to keep you entertained. You’ll get to experience vista views, miles of well-worn paths, rolling hills, some steep short climbs, a few miles of flat terrain with uncertain soil and of course a few river/creek crossings!
The best part, this event is only ONE loop!! So, whether you are an optimist or a pessimist, once you are half way through the course you will have the same mileage to finish as you would to get back to the start if you quit, making that decision to DNF less alluring!
