Baker Ultra: 50-miler

We Need More Women!

The Baker Trail UltraChallenge 50 miler takes place on Saturday, August 27. This year, the race finishes in Smicksburg, PA, which is roughly an hour northeast of Pittsburgh.  In the race's 18-year history, we have consistently averaged a participation ratio of 80 / 20, males to females.  In an effort to buck this lopsided trend, we're working to increase women's registration.  Each month we'll be raffling off complimentary entries to females. Congrats to our first three raffle winners: Traci Hanna, Gina Mannion and Jessica Dalton!
