Frickin’ Hot 50K athlete guide (2021 for reference only)

Folks loved the Frozen 50K so we bring you another opportunity to run around Cassadaga Lake this summer!

Welcome to the beautiful lakeside community of Cassadaga, NY.   Just off of I-90, one hour south of Buffalo, NY and 1 hour north of Erie, PA.

A NO FRILLS ultra-running event for those of you that just LOVE to run!

The Lower Lake in Cassadaga hosts a perfectly distanced 5K loop and this event will have you run or walk one to ten loops, depending on what you feel that day.


Yep, you read that correctly.  We welcome you to bring your dog(s) to run around the lake with you.  They must be registered participants and we will give a prize to the doggy that does the most laps.  Please register them separately when registering yourself.  Dogs must be on a leash the entire time they are at the race site and on the course.  YOU MUST BRING BAGS TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR ANIMALS AND DISPOSE OF PROPERLY.


When we say NO FRILLS, we mean it!  No medals, no t-shirts.

Results will be posted on

**UPDATE to the NO FRILLS ~ we’ve added some frills.  We just couldn’t help ourselves.

  • Restrooms available
  • Take a break or enjoy post race:
    beer zone provided by our awesome sponsors at Southern Tier Brewing Company
  • Hot dogs grilled by Coach Mark beginning at 8:00am until the last runner finishes.  No limit.
