Happy to say that Altra will once again be with us. We have dropped Hammer and brought in Honey Stinger and Tailwind by popular demand. New  aid station food for our all runners/walkers is being planned. Sports Science will once again be helping us out with the shirts that everybody loves!

Race Details:

Saturday, October 6th, 6:00am, Barkcamp State Park Beach

The Barkcamp Race will feature a well-marked Half Marathon, Marathon, and 40 Mile Ultra course throughout Barkcamp State Park's trail system along with a 10k run/walk on the road. as well. The 10k is 100% pavement. The terrain promises lots of up and downs. The course will be marked with ribbons, arrows, and signs. The trail races  are 99% on trails.  Participants can take two laps for the Marathon distance or three laps for the Ultra 40 miler. There is a half marathon walk available to the hikers among you, who want to support our park.  A few have walked the full marathon.  This requires a quick pace and the 7 am early start is recommended.   The race begins and ends at the beach.  

 

Half/Full Marathon @ 8 AM:  

There will be 4 aid stations at spaced evenly throughout the course and at the Start/Finish line for those brave souls taking more than one loop. Aid stations will have Tailwind and Honey Stinger products, water, pretzels, potato chips, cookies, PB&J sandwiches, pickles, candy, boiled potatoes, bananas, and soda. We ask that you bring a water bottle to lessen paper waste. All aid administered to runners by family, friends, and crew must take place within 100' of an aid station.

Restrooms are available at the Start/Finish line area and about the 11-mile mark. Volunteers will be at aid stations with communication if you require that kind of assistance beyond their ability to help there

We will have a drop bag location near the Start/Finish line.

The park has a campground area that is free to participants for Friday and Saturday night (contact us to reserve a spot-not ODNR), and there are many hotels in our area, Sleep Inn Belmont being the closet and offering a discount to you.

40 Mile Ultra Marathon

The 40 miler is back for its second year by popular demand and  is a chance to do three laps of our course. The Ultra will begin at 6 AM sharp and a headlamp or light of your choice will be required. You will have 10 hours to complete the course. Aid stations will not be open till 8 AM but we will have an unmanned aid station around halfway with water and Tailwind. Please see the info on aid stations, drop bags. etc under the Half/Whole Marathon section. We will be adding some sort of reflective tape or ribbon this year to make it a bit easier to follow the course in the dark.

DROPPING:  Never drop out of the race by abandoning the course between aid stations and going “home.” If you have to drop out, let us know at an aid station. Thanks!  We don't want to have to come hunting for you and find out you just split on us :)

 

DISQUALIFICATION POLICY:  The Ultra cutoff of 10 hours and the Marathon cutoff of 8 hours (18:20 min/mile pace on the course) is strictly enforced. The aid stations close accordingly. If a runner is unable to keep the appropriate pace and is in danger of missing the cutoff they will be asked to remove themselves from the race. If a runner refuses to do so they will be immediately disqualified and will be on their own for all aid on the race course as well as the finish line should they choose to continue. This cutoff is enforced for the safety of the runner as well as the rescue team who would need to search for runners on the course. An early start option is available for those who do not feel that they can complete the Marathon in the allotted time. Choosing the early start extends the Marathon cutoff to 9 hours (20:45 min/mile pace). If it is determined that any runner cuts the course in any fashion, whether intentional or not, they will immediately be disqualified from the race.
