Monte Sano State Park – The McKay Hollow Madness Trail Run is a 25ish kilometers (15.5ish miles) of mostly single track trail. The course is run on sections of the Sinks, Panther Knob, Stone Cuts, Mountain Mist, Goat, Warpath Ridge, McKay Hollow, Arrowhead and Natural Well Trails. This is a technical race with some difficult climbs and descents. There will be TWO aid stations: the first at O’Shaughnessy Point (~5.1 miles) and the other at the South Monte Sano Trailhead off of Monte Sano Blvd (~9.8 miles).

This year we are incorporating a 12K option. The 25K and 12K will start at the same location. Around mile 5.5 onto a section of trail known as “Rest Shelter”, the 25Ker’s will drop down into McKay Hollow, and the 12Ker’s will continue straight to the finish. 12Ker’s will only have the aid station at ~5.1 and then the finish.
