Course Maps and Aid Station open/close times:
95% Trail, less road. More Fun
Uniquely designed by Ultra Runner and Mohican finisher,
Michael Patton, Mohican has taken steps over the last two years to replace some
of the, often hot, gravel roads in favor of more shaded single track trail. The
current course design removes the steeply graded prolog hills from 2011,
replacing them with a longer two mile run out through the Mohican State Park
Class A Campground where runners first enter Mohican's
award winning single track. Check out the latest maps and info below!
100 Mile Cutoff:
Final cutoff for the 100 mile race has been extended to 32 hours
50 Mile and Marathon
Cutoffs: There will be no cutoff time for the Mohican Marathon or the
Mohican 50 mile races other than the 32 hour time limit for the Mohican 100
since Aid stations will remain open for the 100 mile race. This means that it
is possible to hike the course, welcome news for slower racers.

NEW for 2013: The Mohican
100 has moved Station A to a large parking area near the Gorge Overlook for
2013. The mileage is about the same. However, a routing adjustment was
required. The advantage is that we can now allow for crew/family access and
pacer access along with much more available space and a large parking area. This
revised map reflects this change.

Rules and Information for
Pacers will be allowed for the 100 mile race only.
The designation of the Mohican Adventures Aid station (A) at
53.9 miles as the first place a pacer is permitted to join a runner is based on
making it easier for runners and pacers to find each other. Located at the
Start/Finish may allow pacers to assist the aid station while waiting for their
particular runner. The purpose of pacing is runner safety. The average runner
starts into fading light at 60-65 miles into the race. Having a pacer along can
offer some assistance to runners as darkness approaches and during the night,
when runners are often more fatigued. An ultra-runner may need a little
guidance following the course markings during those hours. Older runners may need
it sooner, attributing to the approximate 30 mile mark for 60+ runners.
NO PACING BY MOTORIZED VEHICLES is allowed at any time. Aid cannot be
given from any moving vehicle. Any runner paced by a vehicle or accepting aid
from a moving vehicle is subject to DISQUALIFICATION.
NO PACING BY BICYCLES is allowed at any time.
If a registered runner is 60 years old or older, pacing may
start when the runner reaches the Mohican Adventures Aid Station (A) at 28.2
miles into the race at sequence 6.
If a registered runner is less than 60 years old, pacing may not start until
the Mohican Adventures Aid Station (A) at 53.9 miles into the race at sequence
The pacer should drop back as the runner approaches the finish line chute.
Pacers with bibs are allowed to use aid station supplies, food, etc. at the aid
stations during the time that they are pacing a runner.
Pacer Parking Restrictions:
Pacers can park at designated areas for crew access and
handling locations. For pacers meeting their runner at the fire tower, please
park at Mountain Bike Trailhead 2 aid station OR the now closed Mohican Youth
Center which is a bit closer to the fire tower. It is just a short walk to the
fire tower. Do not leave your car unattended at the fire tower. Parking is not permitted
at the covered bridge at any time. Pacers may also park at the Gorge Overlook
Pacers may meet their runners at either Headquarters at
Mohican Adventures, Gorge Overlook Aid Station or at the Fire Tower Aid
Pacers MUST FIRST Check in at Mohican Adventures to let us
1. What runner you will be pacing
2. Where you plan to meet your runner, HQ or Fire tower
3. What time you plan to leave
In previous years some runners have wanted to pace at Mohican but did not know
anyone in the race. During the race, a person wanting to pace may go to an aid
station after 60 miles into the race and ask runners if they want a pacer. Many
runners have been very happy to find an unexpected pacer at an aid station. A
pacer unable to pace because his/her runner has dropped out may still be of
service to another runner.
Runners and pacers may indicate their wish for a pacer, or desire to pace, by
posting a message at the Mohican 100 Yahoo Groups at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the official Facebook Page of the
Mohican Trail 100 .
