Looking for a well-supported run in a spectacular setting with attractions for the whole family? Whether your goal is to run a first ultra, conquer a challenging 50-miler, or set a personal record, the Can Lake 50 is the race for you.
Run one big road loop around the most beautiful Finger Lake in Western New York. The course is mostly flat to rolling roads with several major climbs, including locally-famous Bopple Hill.
Run point-to-point over the final 31 miles of the 50 Mile route. With significantly less climbing and descending than the first 19 miles of the 50 Mile route, the 50K is more friendly for first-time ultra runners and a logical step up from the marathon.
Having a personal handler at CanLake50 is privilege and perk that we are happy to provide. However, with this privilege comes the responsibility of learning and following the safety rules of the race. Make sure that your personal handlers follow the safety rules or your result will be disqualified. The waiver you will electronically sign includes the following text.
PERSONAL HANDLER WAIVER. (For runners that plan to use personal handler at the CanLake50) I accept full responsibility for the actions of the personal handler(s), that personal handler(s) will familiarize themselves with and follow all safety rules outlined in the Race Handbook. Failure to follow safety rules by personal handler(s) -intentional or unintentional - will result in DISQUALIFICATION of the runner

You will need to purchase pre-race dinner tickets for your guest(s) separately. A link with instructions on how to buy extra pre-race dinner ticket will be sent out via separate Email.
