The TRYON FARM TRAIL 5/10/50K RUN is located in Northwest Indiana one hour from Chicago. The course is a 10k loop through rolling native prairie grassland, towering beechwoods, and sloping dunes. Approximately 60% of the course is on wooded single track that follows the existing deer path. The remainder of the trail brings you through a protected native prairie grassland. At one point, the race course takes you over a sod-roofed modern house that has been built into the landscape. The trail also includes a couple of small water crossings so expect to get your feet a bit wet and muddy. Rest assured you will not be running the pavement on this day. Two aide stations will be on the course to keep you hydrated and fueled up.
The Start/Finish line will feature a Pig Roast, Craft Beers from Award-Winning Shoreline Brewery and Pizza from Rolling Stonebaker. In addition, there will be complimentary treats from race sponsors CLIF BAR, Kroger, Zico Coconut Water, and Organic Valley. Free overnight camping is available for 50K Ultrarunners. Contact race director to make arrangements.
This year’s run will benefit the Tryon Farm Institute which manages the land of the Tryon Farm Trail and is raising funds to install permanent interpretive signage.
