Algonquin 50k

Race Details

February 8, 2025
Pocomoke City

Distance: 50k-ish, 31-ish miles (keep in mind these are trails and your GPS watches may lie to you, prepare to possibly run further than what your watch displays)
Mud or Blood is back… and it is gonna be crazy.
Welcome to the fast, flat gem of Delmarva. This is a perfect 50k for those taking on the distance for the first time as well as for those wanting to run a fast 50k with very little elevation change. It looks easy on paper. We are excited to have you join us and experience the trails we love.

Cutoff: The final cutoff time for this event is 8 hours (3:30pm) Runners will be expected to carry the slowest pace possible throughout the entire course. If a runner falls significantly behind pace, The Algonquin Crew reserves the right to pull a runner from the race at anytime and anywhere on the course. If a runner is pulled they are asked to not continue on the course we have marked for the event.
The Course will be a modified out and back, the middle portion will be different going up and returning. This course is 95% trails. Some of the trails are single track and some are wider horse trails. It is completely flat, which should make for a relatively fast 50k. There are a few miles that are sandy and depending on the rainfall the week leading up to the race some points might have water covering the trail. The race will begin and end at Milburn Landing area of The Pocomoke River State Park.
There will be well-stocked aid stations every five to six miles with water, Tailwind Nutrition, soda, boiled potatoes, something sweet (CAKE) and something salty.
Be prepared for cold, rain, snow, mud and possible frozen conditions. There will be a few road crossings, be aware. Most crossings will have volunteers and the traffic is minimal to nonexistent in the area during February. Horses will follow the last runners to ensure a safe return to the finish line.

There is no rain date. We will run in the rain, snow, and sleet.
Only a “force majeure” which makes EMS, Aid stations and support staff unable to function will be cause for cancellation. In the event of a cancellation, no refunds or credits will be applied to future events.
Swag will include all sorts of stuff that runners love.
Handmade local Ceramic Mugs will be given to all the finishers….

Awards for the top 3 men and top 3 women…

The Algonquin 50k is a community-based, eco-friendly, volunteer supported, non-profit event whose mission is to promote, maintain, increase trails on Delmarva. We work closely with Maryland Parks and Maryland Forest to provide a safe, fun, exciting race.
