Prairie Spirit Trail Fall Classic

Ottawa KS 50K, 50 Miler

This Event Took Place Sat. Oct 25, 2014


The Prairie Spirit Trail is a beautiful "rails-to-trails" course that runs through numerous quaint little towns and treats runners to "stunning displays" of incredible fall foliage. Runners will do an out-and-back, beginning in Ottawa, KS and traveling south to Garnett (50 milers) or Richmond (50K's), then, back north to the finish. The course is primarily on a crushed limestone trail, with asphalt paths as you travel through each town. Manned and unmanned aid stations will be approximately every 5 miles (with no greater distance than approximately 6 miles) and the course is easily accessible to crew. It's a great event for first timers, as it's a flat and relatively easy course. It's also the perfect course for experienced runners wanting to set a PR. The atmosphere will be family friendly with plenty of places for your crew to hang out and relax while cheering you on. Pacers will be allowed for the second half of the 50 mile event only, no pacers in the 50K allowed.
