smallBluff-2013-RGB'sThe 7th Bimblers Bluff 50k will take place on on October 19th, 2014. Registration is now open.

The Bimblers Bluff 50k is an off road foot race through several inter-connected woodland preserves in southern Connecticut. Consisting entirely of rolling forest roads or single track that can be extremely rocky, the course will provide a true test of the runner’s fitness and mental stamina. You should only consider entering this race if you are confident you have sufficient running experience such as having completed a recent road or trail marathon. If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to complete this race but would still like to enter, please contact the race director.

We are also accepting online volunteer registrations. Helping at the Bluff 50K can be used as volunteer credit hours to support a volunteer requirement for other ultra distance events. Volunteer support includes helping at aid stations and course sweeping.

The course inter-connects seven woodland properties and offers access to the Genesse Preserve where entry is normally restricted to Regional Water Authority permit holders. Aid station locations are limited to places with easy road access and the distance between stops varies. Runners are strongly advised to carry a drink bottle and their preferred choice of snack. The aid stations will be stocked with a variety of snacks typical of an event of this kind. Water and the electrolyte drink Heed by Hammer Nutrition will be available at all stations.

All entrants will receive a goodie bag containing their race number, race shirt and information about the course. Finishers within the 10 hours time limit will receive a unique finisher award to acknowledge their achievement. There will be additional awards for the overall male and female finishers. The race will be sanctioned by the USA Track and Field Association.

The Bimbler’s Bluff has been established to promote access to the woodland trails in southern Connecticut and in doing so the organizers wish to acknowledge the support of:
