Visit Beaver County Rabid Raccoon 100
Description

The Visit Beaver County Rabid Raccoon 100 takes place in Raccoon Creek State Park, one of Pennsylvania's largest state parks! Winding through the woods, this course will take you on single track trails that travel over hills, across streams, and around Raccoon Lake. This is an event you don't want to miss!

Packet Pickup

There will be NO RACE DAY PACKET PICKUP.  All packets must be picked up on Friday.

The NO's

  • NO REFUNDS
  • NO DEFERRALS
  • NO DROPPING DOWN IN DISTANCE
  • NO RACE DAY PACKET PICK UP
  • NO TRANSFERRING BETWEEN THE MIDNIGHT 20 MILE & THE MORNING 20 MILE
  • NO PACERS ALLOWED BEFORE MILE 60 (3 Loops Completed) 

Aid Stations + Course Food

There are 4 aid stations spaced out around the loop. This means that 100 mile racers will have 20 aid stations, 100K racers will have 12, and 20 milers will have 4.  Aid stations will be equipped with first aid kits, water, Hammer Nutrition's HEED Sports Drink, soda, and food such as pizza, PB&J, bagels, cookies, bananas, granola bars, candy, etc. A more detailed list of exactly what foods will be at each aid station will be released in an email closer to the race date. There are a number of stores and restaurants within a 30 minute drive (check out the Robinson Township Mall) for anyone who has specific dietary restrictions. For information on aid station locations, see the race map tabs above.

Drop Bags

Drop bags will be available at aid stations 1 (Mineral Springs), and 3 (Forest).  Both of these aid stations are located on Rte. 18 making them easy to access by car when you finish your race.  All drop bags will be delivered back to the start of the race after the aid stations shut down (see aid station cutoff times in the Event Schedule below). Runners or crew may drive to the aid stations to retrieve drop bags. To help make drop bag retrieval as efficient as possible, we ask that you label all drop bags with your race number and name. If you are unable to label your drop bag prior to coming to the race, duct tape and markers will be available at registration on Friday and at the start/finish on Saturday morning.

Restrooms 

Portable restrooms will be located at the start/finish area as well as at certain aid stations: 1 (Mineral Springs), 2 (Riders Ridge), and 4 (Heritage). See the race map tabs above for which miles you will pass each station during your race.

Parking

Parking will be available at the Raccoon Creek Beach near the start/finish area. Spectators can also drive to different parts of the course to watch racers during the race.

Crew Access

Crew are allowed at aid stations 1, 3, and 4.  There will be no drivable crew access at aid station 2.  To access aid station 3, spectators and crew may park at the park office and walk up.  To access aid station 2, spectators and crew will need to park at the lot on Nichol Rd. and hike back (a little over a mile).

Aid Station Cutoff Times

The aid station closing times are firm.  Cut-off times are departure times, NOT arrival times. If you’re not out of the station by the cut-off, your race is over. Aid station staff also have the authority to pull you from the course if it is clear that you are physically unable to continue in a safe manner. Their decisions are final, and if you refuse to vacate the course when directed, you will be disqualified.

Aid Station 1 (Mineral Springs): 9:00 AM

Aid Station 2: (Riders Ridge): 12:00 PM

Aid Station 3: (Forest): 1:00 PM

Aid Station 4: (Heritage): 2:30 PM

Rabid Raccoon 100M

The Rabid Raccoon 100 gives you the opportunity to test yourself against the woodlands of Western Pennsylvania.  The course consists of 5 loops on single track trails in Raccoon Creek State Park.

General Course Info

  • Map - (see the "100 Mile Course Map" tab above)
Rabid Raccoon 100k

The Rabid Raccoon 100k is the same course as the 100M, but is only 3 loops.  Whether you want to try out a new distance or use this as training for a longer race, the 100k is a great chance to run a moderate trail race with plenty of aid. It's a great stepping stone to prepare for point-to-point ultras where you might go miles without the possibility of aid.

If you are not looking for an ultra-marathon but still want a challenge, the Rabid Raccoon 20M is the race for you.  Running the same course as the 100M and 100k, the 20M is just 1 big loop of the park.  If you have a friend or loved one who is running in one of the longer races, this provides you the opportunity to get in a shakeout while they are in the early stages of their race.

General Course Info

  • Start - Saturday 8:00 AM
  • Finish - Saturday 8:00 PM (12 hour time limit)
