50 Rattling Miles marathon

The 50 Rattling Miles marathon is coming to Pennsylvania's Weiser State Forest on Saturday, July 28. The race is being billed as an ideal first time marathoner's course that is sprinkled with trails that will challenge the most experienced and fastest racers. The course is reportedly more balanced than the other, more extreme, races on the Mid Atlantic Super Series (MASS) calendar, with entertaining obstacles, outstanding views, and the actual distance is a little shorter than the named 50 miles.

Promoter Mike Kuhn points to the race's venue as an example to all mountain bikers. "While we mountain bikers constantly find ourselves facing new restrictions on trail usage," said Kuhn, "the crew at Rattling Creek Single Trackers (RCST) has engaged in a cooperative relationship with Pennsylvania's Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) that has led to more and more miles of trails being built and opened every year since RCST's inception.

In the event of inclement weather, the race will still be held, but course detours will be made to protect the trails. A portion of the proceeds from the race will benefit the Blue Butterfly Fund (bluebutterflyfund.org) which assists the families of victims of childhood cancer.
