12/22/14 - The Race Results for both the 30 K and the 50 K events have been posted. All runners who completed at least 30K (5 trail loops) were scored in the 30K race, and those who went on to finish the 50K distance were scored in both races. Please contact Richie if you have questions about these results.
12/16/14 - The Race Director has just posted a rough course map for the race. This is a fairly complex course, but he promises that all turns will be well marked.
Registration has CLOSED as of 3PM Wed, 12/10.
Thanks to everyone who's registered already, but we have reached our limit for this race, so no additional registrations can be accepted. Please contact the Race Director if you have questions about your registration.
Snafus with the Parks Dept (and with a specific Park Manager) have caused us to relocate this event to the trails and paths of Alley Pond Park. See more explanation here. *** Final course details and directions to the start available here ***.

**NEW (as of 12/5/2014)**
Latest info from Race Director:
  • The Trail Mix-up will still be on December 21st and still will start at 9:00 AM.
  • The event will start at the Alley Picnic (a.k.a. Alley Adventure) area of Alley Pond Park, not by the Tennis House as previous BUS ultras. The Picnic/Adventure location is situated on a hill overlooking the tennis area, and access there is still from Winchester Blvd.
  • A new information sheet will be e-mailed to you with new details; e.g. directions... or click button below.
  • Alley Pond can also be accessed by mass transit by a short LIRR ride from Manhattan, Brooklyn, Woodside and Jamaica to the Queens Village Station. A volunteer transport will then take you to the race site (train arrives about 8:14am).
  • The race course will still include two separate course loops.
  • The first loop will be about 3 miles on a combination of paved footpaths and trail terrain in "woodsy" surroundings.
  • You will run five (5) of these loops to complete 30 kilometers.
  • Each participant will then receive an official time and place for the 30K.
  • You will be able to continue (if you wish) to complete 50 kilometers. The remaining 20K will be seven (7) 1-mile loops on rolling paved paths.
  • We are distributing ski caps with the BUS logo to all runners... and awards to all finishers.

Initial information from the Race Director (Richie):
The Broadway Ultra Society (BUS) plans to coordinate a low-key 50-kilometer ultra with corresponding 30K run in Forest Park on Sunday, December 21st. Some features of the race include:
  • The event will be run on two separate courses. All entrants will run a 30K section on a trail loop, with 50Ker's finishing with a final 20K section on a road loop.
  • All runners who finish the first 30K will be scored (and awarded) for that race. You do NOT need to declare the 50K distance at the start... just keep going.
  • Although the course loops have been mapped and measured, race day weather and vagaries of the Parks Dept. may require some last minute changes.
  • The Entry fee will be an economical $25 for all registrations by Thursday, Dec 18th. Late and post entries will cost $5 more.
  • Fee-free on-line registration at UltraSignup.com available on Tuesday, 10/28.
  • BUS stocking cap to all runners.
  • Enclosed shelter near the start/finish.
  • This event is open to all runners, not just BUS members, but PLEASE register early to help us in planning.
