We have all had DNF’s or dropped distance in the past. This happens. But what we don’t want to happen is for you to not tell us. If you drop, get picked up at an aide station from one of our volunteers or a supporter please let us know! If you were planning on the 50k and after the first 25k you hear the party and want to skip the second half of the course. We won’t judge you, just let us know!

Why do we need to know, because if we don’t know we think you are still on the course and we want to be sure you are safe. So who do you tell?

You can either stop by the timing truck (trailer) and tell the Vertical Runner Team or you can call or text this number: 419.651.3820. Our logistics team will be using this to keep all runners safe!

If you know the area, please consider parking at Mohican Lodge and walking over to camp. This would be so helpful!

  • Parking for the 50k runners will be located at the camp's main property inside the gates. Nuhop is located at 1077 Township Road 2916, Perrysville, OH 44864
  • Parking for the 25k runners will be outside the main gate in the field before Nuhop's main gate. Use directions for Nuhop above! Overflow parking will be at our beach property and will be a short .5 mile walk to the main property!
  • Parking for the 5k and 9m runners will be at Mohican Lodge and Conference Center located at 1098 Ashland County Road 3006, Perrysville, OH 44864. Park in the upper parking lot to the left and bottom right parking lot to the right. Signs will direct you to Nuhop. This will be a short hike that will take you over a section of the Fuzzy Course (So watch out for runners)!

Car Pooling:

Parking is at a premium so please consider carpooling with your friends and family! That would be so helpful.

Kegs & Post Race Chili will be available starting at 10:00 a.m.

Course Markings:

  • We will mark the course with flags.
  • The flags will be white and pink.
  • Always follow the flags to your right.
  • At curves the flags will curve the direction you should go.
  • If you see flags on your right and left, this is an out and back section, just follow the ones to your right.
  • We will also mark the course with directional arrows.
  • If there is no writing on the arrows, that means all distances are on that section.
  • If there is writing, pay attention to what is written as these are splits for the different distances. For example, early in the course the 9 mile folks split left and the 5k, 25k and 50k course goes right. This would be indicated on the signs.

Distance Change:
If you are considering a distance change, please reach out to vertical runner race management. You can reach the race timing team at -brian@verticalrunner.com.
