Introducing

Goose Adventure Racing is excited to announce the sixth running of the Ontario Summit Trail Races. We will host a Spring trail 1/2 marathon trail race at Ontario County Park – Gannett Hill on a future panding Summer date. The trail 1/2 marathon will start at 9:00 AM.

Format Changes

We are eliminating the full marathon and will hold ONLY a ½ marathon moving forward. This is to reduce congestion, to simplify aid station traffic for increased sanitation and cleaning, and to simplify race management.

The Ontario Summit Trail Races

You can expect to enjoy some amazing wooded trails that you might not have experienced before. The course consists of a high percentage of rolling tree-covered single-track located mostly around the summit of Gannett Hill, the highest point in Ontario County. You will run on nearly every trail within Ontario County Park, as well as a few trail surprises. There will be rocks, roots, wooden bridges, and some awe-inspiring views. The Ontario Summit Trail Races will be capped at a maximum of 80 racers (individual events are not capped).

What to expect

Like any of Goose’s events, don’t expect to achieve a trail PR on this course. The Half-marathon course will consist of a full 13.1 miles of one-way running with no two-way traffic. The race course is incredibly spectator friendly, so expect to be cheered on by friends and family throughout the race, not just at the start and finish. We are excited to present these races at a great value of $50 for the half marathon distance. Prices will increase by $10 3 weeks before race day.

Runners will be supported during the race with 3 fully-stocked aid stations, every 3-4 miles along the course, with water, electrolyte drinks, gels, salty snacks, ginger ale and Coke.

All participants will receive a generous post-race picnic banquet. Finishers will receive a custom finisher award.

A full course map and elevation profile are provided below. Did you hear about the Gell Center Hill? We offer some serious elevation change on privately-owned trails for the mountain goats out there.

Withdrawals
