Montour 24 Endurance Runs


REGISTER NOW: HERE

Overview

Come to Danville, PA for the River Towns Race Series Montour 24! Whether you’re ready to compete at the 12 or 24 hour ultra-endurance levels or the 6 hour or relay team levels, the Montour 24 will be a true test of your mid-summer fitness. Run at one of the most historic and beautiful parks in central Pennsylvania, the Montour 24 will be the newest addition to your must-do list each year.

Race Details

LOCATION AND PARKING
This event is held at the Hess Recreation Area, 202 Meadow Lane, Danville PA 17821. Click on the link to view the recreation area map and obtain directions to the park. You may also click the map icon at the top of this page to bring up google maps.

COURSE DESCRIPTION
The 1.50 mile loop course is entirely on non-technical single and double track with the exception of the grass field crossing to access the aid station and start/finish line. The course is entirely traffic free. The trails are wide enough to run next to another runner or easily pass them through out most of the course. To see a 3D view of the course, please see the photo in the photo bar above.

CAMPING/TENTS
There is plenty of space for you to set up a tent or canopy directly along the course, which is what the majority of participants will do and we encourage you to do the same no matter which time option you are competing in. The park will be open Friday night and you may camp for free. Relay teams are encouraged to decorate their team tents and bring tailgating games to play between your turn to run.

BIB/SHIRT PICK-UP
We will be have bib and shirt pick-up Saturday at the Hess Recreation Area pavilion from 5:15am - 6:45am. We will not accept race day registration. The race starts at 7 a.m.

AMENITIES
Food and water will be available every 1.5 miles located just past the start/finish line. The aid station pavilion will be fully stocked and will include a variety of foods such as fresh fruit, chips, energy bars, sandwiches and snacks. We will also have special items such as grilled cheese, perogies and soup throughout the race day. Relay team members will have access to the aid station while they are running but all teams should plan on bringing their own food to eat while they are waiting for their turn to run again.

Medical support will once again be provided by the Geisinger Sports Medicine/Orthopaedic Institute and they will be onsite for the entire race.

The bathrooms will be conveniently situated next to the tenting area and aid station pavilion. There is also an outside shower facility on site for your convenience.

Relay Teams

The relay option will span the entire 24 hours. The teams will rotate 1 runner every hour, in a predetermined order, to complete the 24 hours. Each team member at the end will have run a total of 6 hours. The accumulative mileage of the entire team will determine the winners.

Relay teams will need to elect a team captain who will be responsible for registering and paying for the entire team. Once the team has been activated, the remaining team members will then need to complete the registration process after they are invited by the team captain.

Rules

RESTING RULES
The course is designed so that you may, at any time, have access to the aid station and tenting area directly after completing a lap. You may rest as long as you want and start back running when you want. To make it as fair as possible, we ask that you do not leave the race site unless you absolutely must do so.

We expect relay teams to also stay at the race site for the majority of the 24 hours. It would be an unfair advantage for relay members who are local to go home and sleep in their beds when runners who have traveled from far away are sleeping in tents at the site. Relay team members are permitted to leave the race site for the purposes of obtaining food, additional gear, etc.

RUNNING AT NIGHT
Runners must have a headlamp at all times from dusk until dawn – no exceptions! The course will not be illuminated during the night except at the aid station and start/finish line. We will marshal the course throughout the night for your safety.

CREWS AND PACERS
Runners may have crews and can access them through the tenting/canopy area and through the aid station pavilion.

Pacers will be allowed at this event for the 24 hour runners from dusk to dawn.

Awards

The awards for the Montour 24 are as unique as the history of the area. Each overall male and female winner in each time option, along with the winners of the 4 person team relay, will receive a custom forged railroad spike knife. Each knife will be hand stamped with the race name and time option won. Every participant, no matter the distance run, will receive a custom finisher award.

*All proceeds benefit parks, trails and outdoor recreation in Montour County, PA.*

Call of the Wilds 25k (2017)



Description

The Pa Trail Dogs are excited to offer a new course layout for 2017. The course will be more "runner" friendly as we're going to get back to our roots with this 25K course. The course will use the Mid State, Spiked Buck, Tiadaghton, Gleason, and of course, the infamous Turbert Trail to keep things entertaining. To reward runners after Turbert, we'll be sending you down one of the nicest downhill runs on the Love Run Trail and then finishing on Panther Run just like in years past. The event is open to hikers as well but please be properly trained and ready to finish in under 7 hours. Walkers should partake in our Little Pine 5 Miler held in conjunction with this event. It is a great entry level course. The Finish Line of both races will be handled by Falcon Timing and we'll have food and drink as usual.

Registration

Registration opens December 24th at 12pm EST. The event is limited to the first 200 runners. The fee for the event is $55.00. This is NOT an entry level course.

Help support Shawn Mastrantonio, our VHL Warrior.


Our beloved VHL Warrior, Shawn Mastrantonio, needs our help.  He just received devastating news that he has to undergo his third brain surgery as he continues his fight against this rare cancer.  He has a tumor that has grown drastically and is pushing against his brain stem.  Additionally he has developed a cyst that must also be removed. He is immediately heading to Columbus, Ohio to undergo this surgery with his specialist.

This costly surgery is minimally covered by his insurance and will have to be paid largely out of pocket.

Shawn has been and continues to be a strong and humble man who inspires us all in the way he chooses to fight this disease, the way he uses his running as an educational platform for VHL (Von Hippel-Landau), and the way he lives his life.

We are reaching out to anyone who would like to make a donation to Shawn and his wife, Kim, to help them with the mounting medical expenses so that they can focus on his recovery and healing.
