Welcome to Many On The Genny

July 22 2023


What: A 44ish mile trail ultra using both sides of the famous gorge in Letchworth State Park. With 90% of the course off roads, you will traverse single track, fields, foot bridges and bridle paths. You will experience beautiful vistas, quad busting climbs, and most importantly a grass roots, community friendly event.

In the style of old school ultras, this race comes with a need for self sufficient runners – We have 5 fully stocked aid stations and 2 water stops on the course spread out among the 40+ miles. Be prepared to spend up to 8 miles between some of the aid stations in some remote sections of trail.

The field is capped at 150 runners. Please keep this in mind. We will have a wait list (1st come 1st served) Each aid station has a time cut off and an official finish is 14.5 hours or less.

Where? Letchworth State Park -Often called the “Grand Canyon of the East” and voted Americas best State Park in 2015 by the USA Today and 10best.com


When: July 22, 2023

Who are we? Directed by Eric and Sheila Eagan from #TrailsRoc they have been directing events together since 2012. With numerous ultra races completed, and countless trail races on their directors resume, rest assured all of your needs will be met on race day. Both spent time visiting, exploring, and falling in love with Letchworth as children. Eric lived at the entrance to the park  for 2  years scouting and running trails in 2003-2004. The couple then spent an entire week covering every single mile of trail on both sides of the Genesee River in the summer of 2014.

Many On The Genny is a culmination of all of these visits. After years of dreaming, planning, prepping and experiencing these trails, Eric, Sheila and the #TrailsRoc team are ecstatic to share them with you!

  1. I am very interested in the event. I’ll make a decision after I complete the can lake 50. Is there still spaces and do you offer a medal? Could you hold a place?


    1. Hi Joe – There will not likely be a medal for this event. Runners will each receive a shirt, a visor, and post race party along with drinks from a local brewer – We do not hold spaces for runners and hope to see you there!


  2. With North Face as the sponsor, I was curious if any of the gear for sale would be printed on North Face products? I am always willing to pay more for a good quality product.


      1. That stuff looks great. I’m not familiar with them, but will be sure to order somethings to test out. Thanks for letting me know.


  3. Is 9 weeks enough time to train for this? I really want to do it! But not sure if its a good idea. I’m not a winter runner so not in shape yet, But I usually get back into long distance pretty quickly. The longest I’ve done is 10 mi Webster classic last summer and done half marathons but I’ve never done a marathon. Any advice? Should I wait until i have more training time to try a distance like this?


    1. Hi Lauren we cant really make the decision for you. The distance is long and the course is difficult. With that said the race is currently sold out. You can get on the wait list start putting in the miles in. If you get in to the race you can make a decision at that point!


    1. Hi Adam – There are shorter races in Letchworth – the Dam Good Trail race as well as Sehgahunda. This race is a specific to an ultra event


  4. No training no problem (saw the training comment from last year), getting excited for this one. I don’t train but I also never dnf’d, hoping really bust these quads 😉 looks like a blast!
