The lore of Foxcatcher Farms continues...
Throughout the decades, the hills and hollows of William duPont's storied estate have tested the limits of thoroughbreds. Barbaro trained for his Triple Crown; Olympic swimmers and wrestlers grappled for glory; and generations of duPonts out-foxed their furry foes.
This year, as the sun rises on the summer solstice, you can follow in the footsteps of greatness.
Whether foal or filly, we invite you to trod the grounds of Fair Hill for the Big Elk Marathon & Half-Marathon. You're in for 26.2 miles of rollicking terrain, on which jockeys have ridden and stallions have stridden. Get the jump out of the gate if you must, but remember: It's a marathon, not a sprint.
This event is part of the XTERRA Trail Run Atlantic Series.

This off-road course has a little bit of everything!
Starting by the fairground rec center we'll run a little bit of a road prologue to thin out the crowd before we hit the trails. The course is a mixture of single track, double track, gravel road/DNR fire roads, bridge crossing, XC field crossings, and a creek crossing or two. The first third of the trail has a healthy amount of rock gardens to keep you alert and on your toes while the rest of the course has a fair amount of roots to keep you engaged.
Registration & Packet Pickup:
