Rabid Racoon 100 Ultra - Sign Up Page

March 18-19, 2023

Setup Friday March 17th
Rabid Raccoon 100 takes place in Raccoon Creek State Park, one of Pennsylvania's largest state parks! Winding through the woods, this course will take you on single track trails that travel over hills, across streams, and around Racoon Lake. On March 18-19, 2023 the Rabid Raccoon 100 ultra marathon will take place out in Raccoon State park. The park is located about 5 miles west of Greater Pittsburgh Airport. The race will be using the trails within the park by looping around the park, with one loop being 20 miles long. There will be four aid stations that will need radio operators, plus the command post.

The duties of the radio operators will be communicating the runnerís progress back to the command post, and relaying the needs of the aid station personal back to the race organizers. We will also be letting the authorities know if there any emergencies needs. Beside the hams at the aid station they will also be manned by race volunteers that will handle the needs of the runners. Our job will be communications and supporting the aid station staff. This year I would like to keep track of drop out runner better. Please report all drop outs to the command station {Especially the 100k & 100 mile runners}. The aid stations will have a tent, table, and food for the runner {and Hams}. All the aid stations can be driven to, so your vehicle will be nearby, but the perfered operating position is aid station table. It will be good for the radio operators to bring some lawn chairs, and a mobile radio and a handheld HT. Aid Stations #1-Minerial Springs, #2-Trail Riders, #4-Heritage will have J-Pole antennas set up on mast at the aid station tables. The coax cable will have an PL-259 connection please bring any adapters you will need for connecting to the J-Pole.
