20K of Spring Trails

The Muddy Sneaker is a trail run in the Hi Tor Wilderness Area in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The sneaker has some of the quickest elevation loss and gain of any trail run in the region. During the Muddy Sneaker it is possible that you will encounter any or all of the following hazards: rocks, roots, snow, ice, logs to crawl over, logs to crawl under, stream crossings, oversize chickens, and other wild creatures. If you are looking to do a 20K run and compete against the clock or are hoping to set a PR, you may want to look elsewhere. However, if you want to test yourself against nature and your own will to finish, this is the race for you.


This is a primitive site, meaning there is nothing there. We bring in everything except mother nature. There will be Port-a-John's available at the start/finish area. Please feel free to bring a lawn chair to increase your comfort after the race.
Since we are bringing everything into the area, that means we are also bringing everything out of the area. Please help us keep the trash to a minimum.

Aid and Safety

Water, energy drink and other salty/sugary goodies will be available at four aid stations located at approximately miles 2.5, 6, 9, 10.5. If warm out we recommend that you carry additional fuel as needed. Make sure you thank the people at the aid stations, they are putting in a long sometimes cold day. Mild medical assistance is available at each aid station. More advance medical attention is on call. Participants are responsible for covering all cost of emergency evacuation.


Awards will be given out to overall open and master men and women and 10% deep in the following age groups for both men and women.

19 & Under
