Welcome to the 12th annual Hyner View Trail Challenge. For those of you who have taken on the Challenge in the past....Welcome Back!!! For those "newbies" out there....get ready for the ride of your life. The course is set up to challenge each individual both mentally and physically. There are three major climbs and three major descents over the 25K course filled with vistas, stream crossings, and single track paths. The 50K has 5 major climbs with about 6500 feet of vertical. The HVTC is part of the newly formed Rocksylvania Trail Series in 2018. We were also proud to have hosted 9 out of the 12 Trailrunner Magazines Trophy Series winners that chewed up the same dirt at Hyner in 2017. The 50K is the first race in the PA Triple Crown of Mountain Running. We would love to see another great showing in 2018!!
The HVTC 25K has a cap of 1000 total runners or a deadline date of March 1st....whichever occurs first. The 50K, offered to experienced runners only, is capped at 300 and the start time is 8am. Runners are expected to traverse the course in 9 hours or less. The 25K, open to runners and hikers alike, starts at 9am and there are cut-off times in place to ensure a sub-9 hour finish. Parking is across the street at the airfield as usual. There will no parking at the WCSA clubhouse near the start/finish. Please arrive early on race day to pick up race bag and bib as registration will end at 8:30am in order to get everyone across the street to the start line.
The Pa Trail Dogs also put on the Rothrock Challenge (6/9), the Sproul 10K (7/21), and the newly formed Little Loggers 5K (6/30), Hyner Half (8/25), the Boulder Beast (9/22), and the Wilds 25K (10/21). All races are listed in ultrasignup.com for registration.
