Upstate New York
MammothMarch Upstate New York
We are beyond excited to have secured Letchworth State Park, renowned as the “Grand Canyon of the East”, for a second straight year. Hiking 20 miles in 8 hours you will conquer one of the most scenic areas in the Eastern US.
Our single-circuit hiking route leads along the Genesee River, through lush forests, and features spectacular waterfall and gorge views.
Several times voted as “Best Park in the United States”, Letchworth is located just an hour east of Buffalo/south of Rochester and will once again be one of the most scenically magnificent MammothMarches in our 2024 calendar.

Starting time: You can choose from several time slots as early as 6:45 a.m. with limited capacity when signing up. This ensures the most remote hiking experience as a maximum of 5 hikers will cross the starting line at the same time. The first ones will head out between 6:45 – 7:00 a.m. with the majority coming back in just about 8 hours. However, we will have our finish line open for the ones that need a bit more time.
Parking: Complimentary parking will be available on-site; all other Park fees are already included in your ticket as well.
Aid/refreshment stations: There are water stops and aid stations along the route (approximately positioned every 5-7 miles apart) providing toilets, food, and drinks for all participants. These refreshments are included in the cost of your ticket and vary between each station, offering water, energy drinks, electrolytes, fruits, cereal/protein bars, sandwiches, and more.
Certificates: All finishers will receive their personalized certificate after crossing the finish line. For the ones who drop out, we will issue certificates stating the mileage covered.
Finisher medal/wall of fame: For all participants finishing MammothMarch.
