Crew and Spectator Information

Crews and spectators are welcome to make their way around the course to help their runners.  The Shawnee 50 course has some great access points along the course that you can see and help crew your runner.  Below is a very detailed document that you can download and print, or save to your phone, that will help you make your way to each crewable aid station.  In addition to the "Crew Guide" please follow these rules and instructions:

  • You're welcome to hang out at the start and finish area, at the Shawnee Lodge.  The lodge is open 24/7 and is a great place to stay warm and relax while you wait for your runner. 

  • Crewing is only allowed at the designated crewable aid stations.

  • Spectating (but not crewing) can be done at any location along the course, but you must park at a designated parking lot and access the point of the course on foot.

  • Follow all rules in the "Crew Guide" at each aid station.  The Crew Guide lists where to park and how to access each of the crewable aid stations.

  • Obey all traffic laws and drive slowly on the narrow Forest Service Roads.

  • ALWAYS listen to the aid station workers if they direct you to park in a certain area.

  • NEVER block roadways: some aid stations have parking lots and others you are parking along the side of the road.  Move off the road as far as safely possible, into grass or the berm, and allow space for cars to pass through.

  • There will be location that you will drive on the same course as runners (just a short period) and several locations that you intersect the course.  ALWAYS watch for and yield to runners.  

2021 Event Information
We typically open registration for the Shawnee 50 at the start of the year, but at this time we are holding off on opening registration for 2021.  We are continuing to seek information from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) about how they will be issuing permits going forward during the COVID Pandemic.  We hope to host Ithe Shawnee 50 in October of 2021 and once we can be confident we can carry through with the event on that day we'll open registration and update everyone through social media, emails, and this website.  If changes are needed to be made we'll announce them in the same fashion.
