Pennsylvania Ultra Marathon Calendar

Ultra running has been growing leaps and bounds and it's tough to find races that work for you - near where you live, right distance, right terrain, right level of aid provided....etc.  I don't have the time or energy (or desire) to maintain a calendar of ultras for the whole United States, but this post can serve at least as a local calendar for Pennsylvanians (or those in nearby states) to find a race nearby at the right time of year.


I'll maintain this as best I can and if you have an event, or know of an event that I've missed, e-mail me at Another_Mile (at) Rocketmail (dot) com.  (If the current year's date is unavailable, last year's date is shown - feel free to e-mail me if that needs updating, too!)
