Please note: This event is not for new trail runners looking for a PR. You must be able to handle yourself in the woods. This course will have upwards of 5 to 6,000 feet of elevation gain. It will be marked sparingly. Each runner will be given detailed course descriptions and major intersections will be marked, however runners should have basic trail navigational skills (following blazes and numbered trails with the map).
We will not have qualifying standards, however you will notice there is significant distance between aid stations. With that said there will be certain requirements.
- Runners must carry water with them (a requirement of 20 ounces)
- There is no drop point on the finger lakes trail other than aid stations. If you drop at an aid station you will still need to hike up to the road for a ride back out.
- You have an understanding that 40+ miles is a long way to run. -We suggest you print and bring a course map with you.
In the style of old school ultras, this race comes with a need for self sufficient runners – We have 5 fully stocked aid stations on the course spread out among the 40 miles. Be prepared to spend up to 8-9 miles between some of the aid stations in some remote sections of trail. Be prepared to read a map/follow directions/get yourself out of trouble.
Shuttle from finish to start in the morning: Free, but you must sign up during registration
Due to our commitment to the trail, we are not allowing pacers in this event. You must be able to traverse this course on your own.

AUTHORITY TO CANCEL THE EVENT
The Race Director, in accordance with the parks department and the local law enforcement, has the authority to cancel the event, for any reasons deemed necessary. If the event is cancelled by law enforcement, government entities, or land managers we will be unable to provide refunds.
If threatening weather conditions force cancellation of the event, no refunds can be provided, since funds were already spent in preparation for race day. In the event of cancellation, all runners will receive an email with information on how they can still receive their mug and medal.
Such conditions fall under the label “Acts of God,” and will not result in guaranteed refunding of any race entry fees or future event credits.
In the event that Many On The Genny is forced to cancel the race for any reason (such as a force majeure event, including severe weather, wildfire, earthquake, volcanic eruption, flooding, storm damage, infectious illness outbreak, etc.), we will make every attempt to feasibly reschedule the event for a later date. If the event cannot be feasibly rescheduled, we will offer all registered runners the option of receiving a rollover credit to the same race the following year. Credit amount will be determined based on event costs that have already been incurred at the sole discretion of the Race Director. The race credit amount will be communicated to participants via email.
