Out of the shadows of Mt Tammany and the DWG Fatt Ass 50K "FELSENMEER" comes Sunnin' At Sunfish Pond. There will be two distances options: a 30K & a 50K+. These routes will be great to test your technical mountain running prowess.

The 30K will complete the loop twice and is designed to attract newer trail runners to an arduous and technical trail event. The 50K+ will be 5 loops. Mile per mile these events to be just as challenging as Mt Tammany. Complete both events within a year and claim the title of The Terror of Tammany!

ABOUT THE COURSE
The Start/Finish will be @ Worthington State Forest Campground. Runners will start at the campground and make their way 0.25 miles to the Garvey Springs Trailhead and Trail. 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.
All runners must check-in at the timing tent at the Start/Finish area. We must maintain 100% accountability of all athletes on and off the route.
We will be leveraging the trail markings that are already in place on the trails. We will augment with YELLOW streamers at key interestions and possible points of confistino. Please see course map for additional track clarification.
