Registration limited to 200 runners in each distance, and open until Wednesday, May 27th, at Ultrasignup.

Registration fee is $120 for either race (midaswell get more for your $ and do the 50M!) includes race, pre/post food/beverage from Fitnell Farms, a tech race shirt (for those Registering before March 30th and not guaranteed after April 15th), a custom event bag from Boco Gearsinglet and a finisher’s item of some sort (most likely going w/ a Specialized Purist bottle or Elevation Culture Medal).


Welcome to the Cayuga Trails 50M and 50k. In only a few years, and with gracious support from generous sponsors, Cayuga Trails has become one of the more competitive 50's in the country and for years served as the US Championship. Beyond the front runners though the real focus is to provide all entrants, regardless of speediness, a chance to run some of the most beautiful trails in our neck of the world. From continuous and sometimes steep ebbs and flows, waterfalls cascading through slot gorges, single track to runnable park service trails, creek crossings to historic stone stair cases that test the limits of lower extremities, it's truly a gem.

Portions of each entry will go to support the Finger Lakes Land Trust, Finger Lakes Trail Conference, and State Parks Heritage Trust for local trail and park projects. We'll again be a cupless event. If you don't already have one, or lost in in the interim, and need one, you'll have the option to add one to your entry for $5 (cost). I realize the cupless format is a pain for some but hopefully you get the benefit.

Spend some time on the site, come in a day early for the Ithaca Festival and have your crew join in the Ithaca Festival Mile road race. Look into what the Ithaca area has to offer you over the long weekend on, and let us know if you've any questions. We're looking forward to having you.

Drop Bags?

Drob bags will be permitted for both races. Please mark them with AS Name and your BIB# (which we'll have available the couple days before the race). AS1 / Old Mill for both races may not arrive in time for your first passing, so don't bank on that. Please also note that drop bags WILL NOT return until those Aid Stations close down following the last runner clearing that AS. If you need them earlier please go grab them via car on your way out. Although I have made the time and covered the expense to return some over the years, IF YOU LEAVE IT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF GETTING IT OR ITS CONTENTS BACK.

Poles, Pacers, and Crews

Yes you can use poles. However, our climbs are not that long and only a couple steep in parts. It's not the greatest fitting course for poles.

No to pacers.

Although the course is accessible to crews, please note that crews MAY ONLY AID YOU WITHIN AID STATIONS!

Refund Policy

We realize things come up, whether injury or family plans. While we have a no-refund policy, we will roll entries into another RNR event this or next year if notified no more than 30 days out from the race. No refunds or rollovers if notified within 30 days of the event.
