The Manitou Revenge 54 Mile Ultramarathon & Relay begins in Windham, N.Y. on the northern Black Dome Trail and then mostly follows the Long Path from Acra Point all the way to downtown Phoenicia, New York. 15 miles of the course is on the Infamous Devil’s Path which is billed as the hardest trail on the east coast. This race boasts 14,000ft of climbing and is extremely difficult and technical. It should only be undertaken by an advanced hiker/trail runner. 

"This is a grueling, gnarly, nasty course with approximately 15,000 ft. of climbing, much of it rocky and precipitous.  To be sure, there are some runnable sections, but you will more often find yourself hiking uphill or down, sometimes hand over hand.  Expect this course to take you much longer than your average 50 miler. That’s why we are allowing 24 hrs. to complete this monster. Because of its remote and difficult nature, there will of necessity be a limited number of aid stations, 8 or 9, and runners should be prepared to spend up to 3 or 4 hrs between aid stations. You will have to be reasonably self-sufficient. To make matters worse, the course gets progressively more difficult as you go along! And to top it all off, the average runner will have to tackle this hardest terrain in the dark."

Here is our video from the 2015 Manitou's Revenge 54 Mile Ultramarathon & Relay. It was another epic day in the Catskills of New York and it was great to talk with a few of the runners as they made their way to Phoenicia. This video includes a special performance by Guillermo Ayala so be sure to watch from beginning to end! 

Video of the 2014 Manitou's Revenge 54 mile ultramarathon through the Catskills, beginning in Windham, N.Y. on the northern Black Dome Trail and then mostly following the Long Path from Acra Point all the way to downtown Phoenicia, N.Y. It's a grueling, gnarly, nasty course with approximately 17,000 ft. of climbing, much of it rocky and precipitous. This is a great race to photo & video because I get a chance to have my own adventure with some amazing athletes.
