In order to make it more ridiculous—we mean challenging—the event is slated for August. It will very likely be hot. So… get in shape. And bring water.
BoulderDash Half is a "long" Half (13'ish...maybe 14'ish...mile run/walk/hike) through State Game Lands 44, just south of Ridgway, Pennsylvania. For your hard-core trail runners, there is about 2,700+ feet of vertical rise over the course. (See attached maps.) For the rest of you, that means that a lot of it is straight up hill and straight back down. If you still can’t envision it, trust us: It’s ridiculous.
Introduction from the Race Directors
Welcome to the Elk County BoulderDash, the greatest trail event ever. At least we think so.
Below you will find some information about the event, how it came about, what it’s for and how a bunch of strange people came to think that a bone-crushing hustle through the woods was a good idea.
