Welcome the the MT. TAMMANY 10. Out of the shadow of the DWG FA 50K "It's All Rocks!!!" FELSENMEER, the MT. TAMMANY 10 has emerged as the latest and greatest "ULTRA" test for ultrarunners in the region. This will not be for the faint of heart. The 10, 10, in 10! 10 Climbs, over 12000 ft of gain, in 10 HRs. Hence the name MT. TAMMANY 10. You want a real challenge!!! Well here it is!!!
An almost 40.0 mile run traversing one of the toughest sections of trails in the DWG area. This event is not for the faint of heart. Expect no PRs here! These will be the toughest and slowest miles most of you will ever cover. Seasoned Ultra-runners accustomed to this type of terrain may still fall, get bruised, strained sprained and cut. Stay alert, stay focused, stay the course, and you will have a great day on the course. Probably one of the most satisfying ultras you will ever run. This course will have some great mountain views on the climb and majestic waterfalls along with the sound of rushing water on the decent.
Cost for is $110.00 for each runner. Awards will be given to all finishers of the MT. TAMMANY 10! Special recognition awards will be given to all runners completing the challenge UNDER 10 Hours. This is akin to runners finishing a 100M under the coveted 24 hour time line.
We will be utilizing www.ultrasignup.com to track our entrants. We will open registration up on 10 OCT of every year. You will be able to sign-up for this ultra independently or as part of the 2021 Athletic Equation Trail Series.

ABOUT THE COURSE
The Start/Finish will be @ the Kittatinny Parking Lot Pavilion. Runners will run to the Dunnfield parking lot where they will take the Red-Dot trail to the summit of MT. TAMMANY. From here they will transition to the blue blaze trail for approximately 1/2 mile to a left hand turn (staying the blue-blaze trail) down MT. TAMMANY. Runners will descend down MT. TAMMANY, cross over the river at the bottom and hop on the AT for about 1/3 mile to the Dunnfield Parking Lot. Here runners can begin their second ascent on MT. TAMMANY. This will continue for 10 loops. At the end of every 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, and the 10th and final loop, runners will have to return to the Start/Finish Pavilion for check-in and loop verification.
All runners must check-in return to the Start/Finish Area every 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, and final loop for check-in and runner safety.
We will be leveraging the trail markings that are already in place on the AT (White Blazes) and the Mt. Tammany trails (Blue Dot and Red Dot). Please see course map for additional clarification. These markings are curtisy of your National Park and State Park Services.
