New York State is home to some of the most beautiful trails in North America and we have partnered 3 races together in a series to be known as the Empire State Triad.

From quad crushing climbs, to awe inspiring views, the 3 most scenic ultra races in New York will include the USATF 50 Mile Trail Championship, a circumnavigation of the Grand Canyon of the East, and now UTMB qualifier points as well as a Western States Endurance Run lottery ticket.

Finish all 3 in one year and get your name on the list of true East Coast ultra elites while competing to be the Empire State Ultra Champ!

Scoring will be set up via total cumulative time.

We will score the men and women independently as well.

Lowest overall time wins.

You must finish all 3 ultras events to be eligible for the series.
