Come join us Sunday June, 28 2009 for The Wayne Ultra in the scenic Marietta Unit of Wayne National Forest (Ohio's only National Forest)!

This second annual event will showcase some of the area's most beautiful and challenging singletrack while taking you on a true backcountry epic! Additional singletrack for 09! Whether you are out to win or to have a great day on the trail you are sure to be amazed by the natural beauty of Southeastern Ohio.

To ensure a great trail experience, RVMBA volunteers have dedicated hundreds of hours to course preparation. The 45 mile Ultra course is challenging so we will also be offering an "Almost Ultra" course that weighs in at about 20 miles. The race will be staged at the beautiful Leith Run Campground on the Ohio River. The campground offers a playground and hiking trails so bring the whole family! Come and get some!

How to Get There:
