PPTC 2nd Annual 50 Mile Endurance Fest

Sun December 5, 2021 Brooklyn, NY 11215 US Directions


PPTC 2nd Annual 50 Mile Endurance Fest

6:00AM EST - 9:00PM EST
Open to ages 13+.


Following the success of Prospect Park Track Club's 50th Anniversary 50 Mile Endurance Fest in 2020, we are hosting our Second Annual 50-mile ultra event!  15 loops of our favorite park, Brooklyn's backyard - what could be nicer?  One year later, we still can’t think of a better way to spend a winter’s day, can you?

"I truly felt like you all went above and beyond to create a fun, safe, amazing event...Who knew I would love running 15 times up the hill in Prospect Park so much (or, at least not absolutely hate it)!" 


Race Details

Date: Sunday, December 5, 2021
Start Time:
6:00 am
End Time:
9:00 pm (15 hour cut-off)
Registration: $70 until Oct 31 / $90 until Thanksgiving (11/25) / $120 until 12/3 or sold out

PPTC does NOT provide bib transfers or refunds.

  • Race will be chip-timed by Catskills Timing. (We're done with the manual timing and clipboards of 2020!)
  • This is a cup-less and contactless race. Each runner will be given 2 one-gallon water jugs to refill your personal cup or bottle on your own. You will be assigned your own ~3 foot area in the race transition area for bag drop, rest, and refueling needs.
  • Park Slope Volunteer EMS will be onsite for the duration of the race.
  • Race registration will close once event capacity is reached - do not delay signing up! Race day registration is NOT available.

This is an in-person event pending any unforeseen city closures due to COVID-19. In true ultramarathon fashion, all finishers will receive a sweet belt buckle, designed by our very own Will Ngo. The only other awards for this race are bragging rights and an epic social media post.


Race Packets

Packets will be available on race day only; we will not be mailing packets prior to the event. We will notify you of your bib number by email in advance.

Vaccination Requirement

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking all race participants to present proof of vaccination & ID at packet pick-up. We will require all participants and race volunteers to have had one of the vaccines approved in the US (Pfizer, Moderna, J&J) and their 2nd vaccine dose (1 if J&J) at least 14 days before race day (11/21). Please do not register if you have not been vaccinated as we will not release a bib to you. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.


The course consists of the full loop of Prospect Park (3.3341 miles), 15 times in a row. That’s it, nothing fancy! The start/finish will be just north of the Lincoln Road park entrance. Race central will also be located at the start/finish area. ONLY registered runners and race crew/volunteers will be allowed in the race area.
