Bills Bad Ass 50K November 10, 2018

10th Year Anniversary Race

The course is a five-mile loop that starts and ends at the Everett Covered Bridge. The  race takes a clockwise or  counterclockwise route (depending upon the race director). It is a hilly course  with steep climbs and some Furnace Run crossings. The trail meanders through thick deciduous forest; the ground will be covered in leaves and the path will likely be slick and muddy. The weather is typically less than ideal, however the determination and spirit of our Bad Ass runners always prevails.
