Overview

Running along the Long Path through the Catskills from north to south, these are some of the most rugged trails you'll find anywhere, and don't be surprised how beautiful the woods, trails, and views can be. The race capacity is limited to 125 runners. Register early!

Description

Manitou’s Revenge is a 54-mile ultramarathon through the Catskills beginning in Windham, N.Y. on the northern Black Dome Trail and then mostly following the Long Path from Acra Point all the way to downtown Phoenicia, N.Y.

THIS IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER ULTRA YOU’VE RUN BEFORE!

This is a grueling, gnarly, nasty course with approximately 15,000 ft. of climbing, much of it rocky and precipitous. To be sure, there are some runnable sections, but you'll more often find yourself hiking uphill or down, sometimes hand over hand. Expect this course to take you much longer than your average 50 miler. That’s why we are allowing 24 hours to complete this monster. Because of its remote and difficult nature, there will of necessity be a limited number of aid stations, only nine, and runners should be prepared to spend up to 3 or 4 hrs between aid stations. You'll have to be reasonably self-sufficient. To make matters worse, the course gets progressively more difficult as you go along! And to top it all off, the average runner will have to tackle this hardest terrain in the dark.

So… There must be something that makes this race worthwhile, right???

Yes, the Catskills are truly scenic and wonderful, when you can look up every now and then to sneak a peak, and this will certainly become a memorable experience for anyone who takes on the challenge.
