On March 21st, the second annual Lt. J.C. Stone 50K will be held at North Park in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Lt. Joseph Charles Stone, known as J.C. to his friends and family, enlisted to serve the USA in the Vietnam War and gave his life for his country when the small village where he was engaged was overrun by the Viet Cong. His legacy is one of bravery. This run is in memory of J.C. and all the brave soldiers who have fought for our country.
The course starts at the North Park Boat House with a short out and back, then proceeds to complete 6 5-mile loops around scenic North Park Lake. About 2.5 miles from the Boat House runners will pass Lt. J.C. Stone Field. This 5-mile loop has been the home to many exciting Ultras in the past including the former GNC 50K/50Mile/100K race. This course is sure to produce fast times since it is entirely on pavement.
