*Some insight into the model: We know you have a lot going on. The new model provides more opportunities for everyone to sign up. You might receive your paycheck at different times, work different hours or might be waiting for the Western States drawing! We realize that there is no perfect option. This option also allows us to preserve the long standing Laurel surprise opening announcement .


We’re excited to announce that we’re growing in our relationship with PA DCNR / Laurel Hill State Park. We’re partnering with them in 2023 by adding a Laurel Highlands Ultra Racers: Spring Volunteer Day! The exact date is TBD! We’ll keep you all updated when we land on an April or May date soon!  



Keep your eyes on this website, our instagram, facebook page,  and facebook group for more updates.Stay safe and happy trails!

Welcome to the homepage for the Laurel Highlands Ultra races. Each year the race is held on the second Saturday in June. 2022 will be the forty-third running of the 70.5 mile race and the seventeenth running of the 50K race.

We acknowledge that the land on which we run the Laurel Highlands Ultra is the original homelands of the Monongahela, Shawnee and other nomadic nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land. Laurel Highlands welcomes racers of every race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics or disability.

All of the races are point-to-point. The races will start in Ohiopyle, PA, with the 70.5 mile individual and relay races running the entire length of the trail to Seward, PA and the 50K races finishing at the 31 mile point before  the intersection of Route 31. All of the races are point-to-point along the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail.

We hope to see you out there on June 11th! Thank you and stay safe!
