On December 7th, USA Track & Field’s Mountain/Ultra/Trail Council awarded the 2014 and 2015 50 Mile Road Championships to the Door County Fall 50.
There were two races bidding to host the race. The other race, the Tussey Mountainback Relay in Pennsylvania, has hosted the event for the past six years. The bid by Fall 50 organizers includes a $12,000 prize purse to be split among the top five male and female finishers in the open and masters divisions of the race.
Race Director Sean Ryan said, “We’re honored to be selected for hosting this event. It’s a testimony to the hard work put forth by the staff and volunteers of this race that we were chosen. We look forward to putting on a great event and elevating the profile of Door County nationally in the running community.”
