ALQ50K

The Algonquin 50K is the longest 50K on the Eastern Shore. At least that is what the Race Dictator says. The inaugural race took place February 11, 2017, at 7am. It was an epic race! There was a lot of sand, sweat, water, and briers. Everyone was racing to either beat the competition or beat the clock before the finish. The runners, the volunteers, and the sponsors all made this race a huge success. I could go on for chapters, but you have to run it to get a glimpse of what you missed if you weren’t there from the start.

The race was first inspired by our infamous Race Dictator, Trent Swanson and his friends Chris Demone and Brian Swift. A group from the Pemberton Running Club (PRC), on a freezing cold day in February of 2016 ran in the Pocomoke State Park. They discovered beautiful trails, water crossings, and areas of soft Delmarvalous sand. The Algonquin 50K takes you through the main vein of it all.

The course is an out and back with a loop in the middle to break the course up. The course is a mix of single and double track. A few short roads and a lovely stretch of sand that will make you wonder what is wrong with the creators of this race. You can thank them afterwards.
