"My Favorite Race of the Year!"


I absolutely LOVE this event and White Oak Running Co! The Race Directors work hard to make sure that the food is perfect (it's what hooked me in the first place!), the course is well-marked, and that the atmosphere is friendly!

"Incredible event, exceptional experience!"


I am very new to the Ultra and Trail Running scene and this event was fantastic. The timed nature of the event made it strategically interesting. Is it better to push and finish your last lap with nothing left in the tank, or pace yourself and try to squeeze in one more?

"Great course. Solid support. Very fun. "


This was my 1st year running Miocene. I opted for 6 hour. My own performance aside ;) it was a great event. The RD and his team are top notch. Super friendly and supportive. They checked-in with me after every loop making sure I was doing well and pointed me to where all of the aid was.

"First Timer - A Grand Day Out"


This was my first time doing a race of the running/walking variety so I was a little bit nervous. The race organizers were super friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The park was easy to get to and parking was plentiful, with easy navigation from the park's staff.

"One of the best in MD"


I've done the 9 hour for the past two years and the race is amazing. Very runnable and great scenery. Race organizers are also very organized and great to be around!

"Awesome on so many levels!!!"


In 2018 I did the 9 hour and finished about 35 miles. In 2019 I returned and did the 6 hour and completed about 25 miles. Clearly I enjoyed it enough to return!

I would also highly recommend it to others.

"Outstanding Experience for a New Distance "Racer""


I participated in the 9 hour race. I was using this race as a prep for a walking competition I am participating in the end of June in Sweden. As such, I was not dressed as a "runner" and was carrying gear (a backpack since the June event is self-supporting) no one else was carrying.

"Great race"


Had a great time. Course was nice and we'll marked. Smaller and less commercial of an event than I am used to, but that was a nice change. These guys brought enough food to feed an army. I'll be back next year.
