Vernal Equinox 8/12/24/48 Hour Trail Run

April 5 - April 7

The Fifth Annual Vernal Equinox will once again take place on the beautiful grounds of Majestic Farm in Batavia, Ohio on April 5 - April 7. Majestic Farm is Cincinnati's premier equestrian facility with beautiful wooded trails, along with scenic paths along the woods, and around lakes. This is truly a unique venue! Again this year we are offering free clean horse stalls by the start/finish area to use to store your supplies during the race. The 48-hour runners will have the stalls located closest to the Start/Finish. You can share stalls with friends, just let us know who you want to share with. The stalls are generous in size and four runners can easily share a stall.

Vernal Equinox will be a cupless race. You will receive a reusable cup with your race packet. There will be no paper cups at aid station. We will provide bowls and plates for hot food.

Cash Prizes for 48 and 24-Hour Course Records.

We are constantly learning and we encourage input into our efforts to improve diversity at our events.

The course is 2 miles in length and traverses through wooded trails, lush growths, and gorgeous meadows. Beautiful, smooth, and fast trail with a large barn at start/finish of every loop. Typical ultrarunning food will be provided at the aid station along with some hot food items such as homemade soup, grilled cheese, fresh coffee, etc. Vegan options will be available.

All participants can reserve free clean horse stalls at the time of registration to use as staging/napping/storage areas during the race. RV hookups are available for $45.
