3 Hour race
We are excited to add a 3 hour option to Arrowhead Endurance Run. This race starts at 9am so you can finish and enjoy a BBQ lunch before heading home. Can’t wait to see who sets the new course record for this distance for the women and men’s race!
We will have awesome new and bigger medals this year, overall awards and age group awards for each 5 years.
Buckles for those that get 100 miles in the 24 hour race.
Arrowhead Lake Campground is in Johnston City, IL (about 15 minutes north of Marion, IL) with a certified 2.07 mile loop around the lake. The trail is 99% gravel with a small concrete section up the boat ramp. With less than 50 ft of elevation change per loop, it offers some fast times and supports big miles as we have had national level mileage totals in the first two years! We will have chip timing again by Jason Claunch at Southern Illinois Racing.
Camping is available at the race at Arrowhead Lake Campground. 618-983-3535

My name is Laura Range. I have been running ultras since 2009. I have completed over 100 ultras. Ultrarunning is dear to me and the friends I have made along the way are like family. This will be year 5 of Arrowhead Endurance Run and we want to make it the best ever.
Stephanie Page is also an experienced ultrarunner and RD of the Shawnee Hills 100 race. She is experienced in racing and planning and definitely brings a lot of great experience to Arrowhead.
