If you have any questions regarding this event please contact the Race Director: LouDAngelo@aol.com
GENERAL RACE and COURSE DESCRIPTION
There is a football field at North Park. The field, used for local sporting events, is named to honor Lt. Joseph Charles Stone. Known as J.C. to his friends and family. J.C. enlisted to serve the USA in the Viet Nam War. He was a decorated Green Beret who 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 loop, then proceeds to complete six 5-mile loops around scenic North Park Lake. Approximately 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. This course is the same course as the former GNC 50K/50Mile/100K race. UltraRunners from all over the country ran this course as for several years it was host to several National Championship Road Races. The course is awesome. Asphalt running trail that follows the shoreline of North Park Lake. It will be very well marked and will have volunteers stationed along the course so that you can focus on running and leave the logistics to us. Challenging but very runable.
We consistently have several men and women listed in Ultrarunning Magazine's fastest 50K times.
The schedule is set for the 2015 race! Please enjoy the race reports from our past events, and some photos. Join us on Facebook under Groups. Lt. JC Stone 50K Group is out there and is a good way to follow us and receive updates and information about the event.

INSTRUCTIONS For RUNNERS
The three rules that are strictly enforced: 1) No litter, 2) No pacing by motorized vehicle, and 3) No Aid given from any moving vehicle (bikes are vehicles). You will be disqualified for running afoul of these rules. Please don’t.
- No running pets please. This is a people race.
- Rules that the North Park/Allegheny County Police will enforce are, 1) Exceeding the speed limits around the park, 2) bicycling in the ‘wrong’ direction. The park is a one way cycling park with marked lanes. We run the race in the 'opposite' direction of the bicycle path. Bicycles are permitted on the course. Please observe all signs.
- We start and finish at the North Park Boat House. We have the boat house facility which includes indoor, warm, clean restroom facilities, several picnic tables and the food!
- Parking at the North Park Boat House has been reserved for you, your crew, your family and friends. I expect we will have plenty of room. This is a crew-friendly course, and is supported well with two aid stations. Aid every 2.5 mile. Your can have a pacer. If your pacer is going to run the entire distance they do need to register for the event.
- Please do not litter. Drop your trash at the aid stations, and we will take care of the rest.
- Registration through active.com will be $50 up until March 20, 2015.
- Pre-registration is considered to be registration by midnight March 10, 2015.
- Runners who pre-register will receive a tech fabric shirt (The shirts are awesome). Pre-registered Finishers will receive a finisher's medal (The medal is way cool). Register after March 10 and you do run the risk of no shirt and no medal (I will try to prevent this from happening, but help me out by registering as early as you can).
- There is no registration by mail. If we don't fill the field we will accept walk-up registration until to 7:30am on race day (the entry fee will be $75).
- Top three female and Top three male finishers will receive a unique commemorative award. Top masters (age 40+) male and top masters female will receive a unique commemorative award. Top grand master (age 50+) male and female will receive a unique commemorative award.
- All runners need to check in before 7:30 a.m. on Saturday morning to get their number. This is essential because we will start the race on time. The race will startpromptly at 8:00 a.m.
- Runners will have access to indoor bathrooms before, during and after the run. While we don’t have showers, we do have indoor plumbing. Runners will also have access to bathrooms and port-a-potties along the course.
- PACERS are allowed from start to finish. But if your pacer is running the whole way, please register them as a runner. Your pacer has complete aid station access.
- The Boat House aid station will offer runners food and beverage including sport bars, cookies, pretzels, crackers, water, sports drink and soda pop.There is a different mix of aid station food each year.
- Dropbags may be left at the Boat House Aid Station. In fact you can have your own little area set up near your vehicle. Bring a chair, a cooler and a towel. Make it your own oasis of support if you care to.
- The temperature can vary drastically in March. Be ready for anything from a wet 43oF. to temperatures in the 80o's. I am hoping for 48F and partly cloudy, but you just never know!
- Please report to the finish line area if you happen to drop from the race. Don’t just walk off, we will be worried about you and will spend time looking for you.
Some local hotels in case you need to spend the night.

7th Annual Miles of Smiles 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk
|Boyce Park Ski Lodge||5K, 1M|
Serving Other Souls (S.O.S.), a non-profit organization comprised of students from Franklin Regional Middle School, presents the 7th Annual "Miles of Smiles" 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk
on Saturday, May 30th with the 5K starting at 9 a.m. and the 1 Mile Fun Walk starting at 9:05 a.m.
Over the last six races, the Miles of Smiles 5K, aka the "Miles of Smiles for Sunny" events have raised over $75,000 for its race namesake, Sunny Carney, and others fighting terminal
or life-altering, degenerate diseases. Sunny's legacy of fighting an incurable disease with grace, dignity, and courage is what made her a living legend in this and other communities.
Over the last six years, the Miles of Smiles 5K net proceed's have benefited families of Sunny Carney, Lorri Nixon, and Kristin Croyle, Bruce Linhart, and Susan Pinal.
To honor the memory of Sunny, Kristin, and Susan, and the fight that Lorri endures, SOS has found an old friend and a non-profit that continue to witness courage in the face of terrible hardships. The net proceeds of the 7th Annual Miles of Smiles 5K will be split (50/50) to benefit the famiy of Lorri Nixon and the Miracle League of Western PA.
Lorri Nixon and her family were recipients of one-third of the net proceeds from the 2012 Miles of Smiles for the Gals 5K. Lorri's family respectfully declined a portion of the net proceeds in 2013 since they felt Plum families has been so good to them during her continuing struggle through leukemia. Lorri was the person who suggested that SOS reach out to the family of Susan Pinal (see above) to determine if the Pinal family would consider a portion of the net proceeds. This is just one of countless example of love for others that Lorri and her family has witnessed to her friends, family, and the Serving Other Souls organization. We are in awe of her courage and SOS believes that Lorri Nixon is a true American hero.
Lorri Nixon is a mom of three who is battling Leukemia. She and her husband Tom reside in Plum Borough with their son and two daughters. Lorri suffered a cerebral aneursym in 1996
and developed hard to control seizures after the surgery. In 2007, Lorri had a mini-stroke and they discovered she had a serious blood disorder called Aplastic Anemia. She then developed Leukemia. She has undergone many blood transfusions, rounds of chemotherapy and clinical trials and they have not been able to get her into remission. Lorri has also endured a great amount of bone pain, physical exhaustion, and long periods of isolation due to a compromised immune system.

Event Start Location
Boyce Park Ski Lodge (inside Boyce Park) off of Center Road (front entrance) or Peirson Run Road (rear entrance). Day of Race Registration and Day of Race packet pick-up start on
5/30/15 at 7:30 AM until 8:45. Opening ceremonies will be from 8:50 - 8:55, with an 9:00 start that will be prompt. The 1-mile walk will start at same point at 9:05.
Miles of Smiles 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run will start near the Boyce Park Ski Lodge. SOS runs the same course that the Stampede 5K runs in Boyce Park annually each July. We will start within the parking lot loop of the ski lodge, and the first portion of the race is a loop and a half around the parking lot of the lodge. At that point, the race turns into the heart of the park. The race proceeds past the entrance of the park off of Center Road to the turn around point in the race near the back entrance of the park off of Pierson Run Road. Once the turn around is reached, the race really ramps up with multiple down hill stretches that really allow a runner to go for a PR if they wish!
The Miles of Smiles 5K will recognize the top 2 overall male and female runners of the race. In addition, we will award Masters winners for the fastest male and female 40 years or older. SOS will also award first and second place in the following classes for both males and females: 14 & under; 15-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60 & over

Written Description of Trail
Starting at Algonquin groove run North, up the hill and cross over Papose drive towards the Gilbert Love shelter. Continue to end of Gilbert Love shelter parking lot and continue north along edge of field and up the hill towards Bayer Road. Trail makes slight right at top of road onto old park road and continue for 200-300 feet before turning left and descending onto fresh un-blazed trail. Trail continues through gully and does multiple switch backs with very slight up and downs. Trail eventually ends up on Greer Road and the start of the Red Trail at approximately 0.3 miles.
Cross over Greer Road and follow Red Blazes down the trail descending into the woods and away from Bayer Road. Red trails descends sharply at first and then levels out and continues through wooded and open sections. There is an old oil derelict approximately 1.3 mile. Continue following the red blazes, continue straight over gas pipeline and then cross under high voltage power lines. At the far end of the power line crossing follow trail making a sharp right into the woods. This is the start of an un-blazed trail that winds through the far south west corner of the park. After making the hard right, trail continues onto another gas pipeline and goes generally down hill, after approximately 0.25 miles the trail then makes a hard switch back left towards the far end of the park. Continue following this trail down a steep incline and cross over the small stream below. Continue following this trail along this lower ridge section. Trail roller coasters up and down crossing small streams and running along the edge of the hill. Eventually Pinkerton road can be seen from the trail and this indicates that the trail will start moving left/east back towards old Greer Road. After initial climb the trail levels out and crosses an ATV trail. Continue straight onto rolling trail that eventually goes down and crosses another stream before coming up to “Old Greer Road” and the aid station location for the course at about 2.8 miles of distance from the Start/Finish line.
Of note, Old Greer Road is an abandoned section of Greer Road that can be followed back up the hill and bring you out to the Park Office. Some sections of asphalt can still be seen on the road, but much of it has returned back into nature.
Continue Straight/East over Old Greer Road onto trail heading uphill. Trail comes to a T at top of hill and turn left to continue climbing up the trail. This section of trail runs parallel to Old Greer Road and is not blazed. Continue following this trail until it comes to a T at the start of the Purple Trail. At this point make a hard right to follow the gently wide nicely groomed purple trail for nearly 0.9 miles. At 0.9 miles the purple trail intersect with the green trail and makes a hard right turn downhill. Continue down the green trail and descend the steep descent towards Baldwin Run. Watch your footing as this section of trail is quite steep and can be slippery when wet. After crossing over Baldwin Run, continue another 0.25 miles through the gully until the course begins its ascent out of the hollow. Follow the green blazes up the hill and note the small waterfall to your left during the ascent. However, the trail passes well above the waterfall and does not go directly over it. Keep your eyes focused on the ascent to your right, with the trail eventually becoming very steep and deeply rutted. Plod on for about 0.25 miles and you will soon be rewarded with the intersection of the blue trail and more nice wide flat runnable trail.
At the top of the green trail make a right on the blue trail and continue approximately 0.75 miles until the trail comes out into an open field and tennis courts. Make a left BEFORE the tennis courts and continue up the hill in the field. This section of trail in not blazed and not part of the blue loop. Towards the top of the hill the trail snakes to the left to continue its ascent towards the parking lots of the Chipewa/Flint grooves. Make a sharp right at the top of the hill and continue past the Mohawk shelter running through an open area along the tree line. Eventually the field comes down to where the blue trail is again intersected by making a right back into the woods. Follow the blue trail another 0.3 miles until it makes a steep decent. At the bottom of the hill make a sharp left to continue up an un-blazed trail to arrive back at the Algonquin Shelter and one complete loop of the Hell Hath No Hurry 2014 Course.
