Twisted Branch Trail Run

Twisted Branch Trail has everything you are looking for in an ultra running experience. A classic old school point to point course that’s rooted in the Finger Lakes region. You’ll wind your way through some of the most brutal & beautiful places around. All while being surrounded by state parks, wineries, breweries & lakes. You know you want to run long, now it’s time to get Twisted.

UTMB Qualifier

The Twisted Branch is a qualifying event for the UTMB. The Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc is a single-stage mountain ultramarathon. It takes place once a year in the Alps, and follows the route of the Tour du Mont Blanc through France, Italy and Switzerland. A Twisted Branch finish will earn you 4 points.

Trail Maps &
Description

We have provided trail maps, and a course elevation profile with aid station locations. While you won’t get lost, we're pretty sure you will get worn out. With 10,000 feet of elevation gained/loss in the day, and no mountain to speak of, you’ll be climbing, and descending all day long.

Since we are following the FLT, we encourage you to stay tuned to current trail conditions, seasonal reroutes, and changes to the trail through the FLTC website.

Aid Stations
& Drop Bags

There will be 11 fully stocked aid stations and a handful of quick-fueling stations along the course. We have worked carefully with the community, landowners, authorities, and the FLTC to locate these aid stations in the best possible locations.

We have provided you with a breakdown chart of all of the aid stations, and their locations and proximity to the starting line. Crew access and drop bags are not allowed at all of the aid stations. Also, don’t forget only one car per crew will be allowed!
