RAILEAN’S IS AN AGE 21 AND UP FACILITY!

This is a ZERO support 50K run!

There are a number of gas stations, and stores around the route to stop and get pretty much any supplies you may need! The course is a mix of crushed granite with it mostly being concrete. There is a wide shoulder when next to the roadway.

What you will need? A hydration pack or water bottle or two should be fine. Most water stops are 3-4 miles apart. Depending on weather, also rain gear, light gloves, beanie or anything else that you may want to stay dry or warm. Also cash, ID, and phone of course encase you just have to call for help! You don't need to weigh yourself down with water, food or most other needs. You can purchase along the way if needed.

Runners will need to find their own transportation to the starting line. We will do our best to work with you to help get you back to your car once you finish. But do have a backup plan to get back to where ever you parked, have a friend or family member meet you at the finish, Uber or Lyft are also in the area.
