Buckeye Buster boasts a permanently marked 10.4 mile loop course with rolling hills entirely within Salt Fork State Park, including hiking and bridle trails. The course is marked with pink blazes and permanent wooden signs. Participants will complete a total of five (5) loops for the 50M distance, three (3) loops for the 50k distance, and one (1) loop for the 10M distance. There is more than 4,000′ of elevation gain and 4,000′ of elevation loss over the 50K distance.
There will be a total of two (2) aid stations, one at the Start/Finish and one at the approximate 6 mile mark. Both aid stations will be well stocked with food, drinks, and Hammer Nutrition products. In an effort to minimize paper waste, all participants are strongly encouraged to carry a water bottle. Runners may not accept any aid from anyone (crew, family, friend, moving vehicle, bicycle,) beyond 100’ of an Aid Station. There are restrooms at both aid station locations. The first aid station is located at the second Showerhouse on Rd. 5 in the direction that you are running the course. The second aid station is located at the Lodge. Restrooms are located within the Lodge on the 4th Floor. There will be a location for drop bags at the Start/Finish near the aid station. Bring your drop bags with you to the start of the race.
But this is more than just a race. It’s an opportunity for an awesome weekend with your fellow runners and family! Salt Fork Lodge is offering participants and their families special rates. You can stay in a Lodge Room Bunk that comfortably sleeps 6 people for about $20 per person!

Never drop out of the race by abandoning the course between aid stations and going “home.” If you must drop please report to an Aid Station or Finish Line. Runners who drop without reporting to an Aid Station or Finish Line will not be allowed to participate in future WWR races and/or events.
The race cut off on the course is strictly enforced. The aid stations close accordingly. If a runner is unable to keep the appropriate pace and is in danger of missing the cut off they will be asked to remove themselves from the race. If a runner refuses to do so they will be immediately disqualified and will be on their own for all aid on the race course as well as the finish line should they choose to continue. This cut off is enforced for the safety of the runner as well as the rescue team who would need to search for runners on the course. An early start option is available for those who do not feel as if they can complete the course in the allotted time. If it is determined that any runner cuts the course in any fashion, whether intentional or not, they will immediately be disqualified from the race.
