From the Hyner Website - "The course is set up to challenge each individual both mentally and physically. There are three major climbs and three major descents over a course filled with vistas, stream crossings, and single track paths. The HVTC is part of Trailrunner Magazine's Trophy Series. It is the 2nd race in the Central Pa Trophy Series. 9 out of the 12 Trophy Series winners chewed up the same dirt at Hyner in 2016. The 50K is the first race in the PA Triple Crown of Mountain Running.
The HVTC 25K has a cap of 1000 total runners or a deadline date of March 1st....whichever occurs first. The 50K, offered to experienced runners only, is capped at 300 and the start time is 8am. Runners are expected to traverse the course in 9 hours or less. The 25K, open to runners and hikers alike, starts at 9am and there will be new cut-off times in place to ensure a sub-9 hour finish." read more
