One of North America's largest ultramarathons. Also includes a 3-person 50K Relay and a One-Loop Run(10.8 Mile). The trail is easy enough to be a good first-time trail course; technical enough to give an advantage to seasoned trail runners. Measure yourself against time, distance...and weather!
We're known for the great post-race foods - particularly our array of soups. Overall men's and women's winner of the 50K receive a large, engraved, Indiana specialty trophy. Overall, Masters, Grandmasters, and age group plaques are awarded in all divisions.
A custom finisher's belt buckle will be awarded to each participant completing The HUFF 50K individual race or HUFF 50K Relay. A custom medal will be awarded to each One Loop finisher.
HUFF logo gear for all 50K and 50K Relay participants. The 2017 is a very special item; each one is custom made. HUFF technical race t-shirt included for every registrant in all divisions.
Race start: 8 am for one-loop and relay; 8:15 am for 50K individual runners.

Northeast Indiana Runners may pick up their race numbers, t shirt, hand warmers, foot warmers and gear on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday at Running Around Screen Printing, However, we respectfully ask runners to wait until at least 3 PM on Wednesday to visit the store. The store hours are 9 am to 6 pm.
The Friday night packet pick-up at Running Around is to 8 pm. The optional pasta dinner for those runners wishing to fuel up and enjoy a bit of camaraderie before Saturday's adventure will also include an opportunity for an Indiana craft beer in downtown Columbia City at Chapman's Tap Room located one block east of Running Around Screen Printing's location. Both Chapman's and the catering were new for 2016; both the venue and the food received rave reviews from runners.
