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.
50 Mile - 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.
50K - 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.
Peak fall foliage will create a scenic backdrop for crew, pacers, friends, and family as they accompany you and your fellow ultrarunners along the course to the finish.
After the race, why not extend your stay and explore stunningly beautiful Canandaigua and the Finger Lakes Region? Art galleries, museums, historic sites, boat cruises, winery tours, shopping, and our regionally-famous grape pies are all options for you, your friends, and your family to enjoy.
Eleven well-stocked aid stations. Coffee, juice and bagels at the start. Post-race feast provided by Wegmans.
Special support for first-time ultrarunners.
Free transportation to the 50K start.
A medal for every finisher -- gold, silver, or bronze -- based on age-graded standards.
Pre-race dinner and packet pick-up at The Inn on the Lake -- a peaceful and scenic gem on the northern shore of Canandaigua Lake.
