|The Barkcamp Race is cancelled for 2020.|
Barkcamp Trail Race Ultra, Marathon and Half Marathon
The Barkcamp Race will feature a well-marked Ultra, Marathon and Half Marathon course throughout Barkcamp State Park's trail system. The terrain promises lots of up and downs. The course will be marked with orange ribbons, arrows, and signs. These races are 99% on trails. Participants can take two laps for the Marathon distance and three laps for the Ultra. There is a Half Marathon walk available to the hikers among you who want to support our park. The race begins and ends at the beach.
There will be 3 aid stations spaced evenly throughout the course and at the Start/Finish line for those brave souls taking the second loop. Aid stations will have Tailwind Nutrition products, water, pretzels, potato chips, cookies, PB&J sandwiches, pickles, candy, and soda. Additional changes in aid station food are forthcoming and we will update as those decisions are finalized. 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-feet 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.
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 closest and offering a discount to you.

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!
DISQUALIFICATION POLICY: The Ultra cutoff is 10 hours (15:00 min/mile pace on the course). The cutoff time to start the last lap will be 1PM. The Marathon cutoff is 8 hours (18:20 min/mile pace on the course). Cutoff times are strictly enforced and 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.
And, if you ask early, we have a few couches and floors available!
