Gunpowder Keg Ultra
April 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
RACE NAME: Gunpowder Keg Ultra
DATE: 04/18/2020 at 8:00 AM
LOCATION: Gunpowder State Park, Bunker Hill
RACE DIRECTOR: Bart Rein
Your Baltimore Road Runner’s Club is pleased to once again put on our annual trail ultra in Northern Baltimore County’s Gunpowder State Park, Bunker Hill section. This beautiful and challenging race is run on a 15.5 mile loop of mostly single track trails, a smattering of fire road, and a small downhill stretch on an asphalt road.
25K runners will complete this loop once. 50K runners will complete the loop twice. There are several “turn back to start” opportunities at shorter distances. Many of the miles are adjacent to the Gunpowder River with heron sightings and fly fisherman sightings almost guaranteed. We will have at least 3 aid stations for each loop, that will be staffed by courteous volunteers.
We will have race day registration, and parking is free and conveniently at the start/finish/25k checkpoint.
We ask all to bring a gallon of water for the aid stations, or any snack you might wish to share. We suggest a $15 voluntary donation which will go to BRRC (we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit) and the park, to keep this and other venues beautiful and available for our use.
Contact Bart with any questions.
In 2020 we will continue our BRRC Trail Race Series! BRRC members who complete or volunteer for four out of seven trail races (or any combination of) will receive an award at the membership meeting in December. We don’t know what the award will be yet, but it’ll definitely be rad.
