This year’s 70-mile race will be a virtual one.

We have exhausted all other options. In the best interest of public safety and Covid restrictions set forth by NY state, this year’s race will be a virtual one.

Here is how it will work: You will have anytime from Friday morning, May 28 till Monday evening, May 31 to continuously complete the 70-mile course. You must start in Otsego Lake and finish in Bainbridge. You will have to provide your own GPS tracker. You will need to present to race committee your GPS proof of finish and adherence to course. Once you present your GPS proof you will be mailed a finishers T shirt and get an official 70-mile finish. Entry fee will be $30 per person which covers insurance and t-shirt. There will be no awards, no winners, no times, just a finish. Entries will open for Virtual 70 May 1. You must pre-register to get credit for an official finish.

We look forward to an amazing race in 2022.
