A classic Mid West trail ultra marathon, the Mark Twain 50/100 Mile Endurance Run, is in its 5th year. The course is a 99% single track trail race with rolling runnable sections and technical climbs. The race is held in the Mark Twain National Forest outside Berryman, MO on the Berryman Trail located about 1.5 hours from St. Louis, MO. The Berryman Trail is a 25 mile loop that will be repeated 2 or 4 times counter clockwise. The loop starts and stops in the Berryman Campground where you and your crew/family are welcome to stay and camp for no cost. The St Louis Ultra Group provides excellent aid and a great venue with generous time limits to provide both the most veteran of runners and first timers a great experience. We hope you join us in September!
