About the Event

ALL ENTRANTS MUST CARRY A WATER BOTTLE OR HYDRATION DEVICE TO PARTICIPATE.
A beautiful but challenging run on hilly trails.

This course is very different in many ways from the February "Run Toto Run" Race.

50K Run, 10-Mile Run, and 20-miler. The course is 10.4-miles long, and is run on a mixture of bridle and single-track trails in a hardwood forest, with some decent hills thrown into the mix. There are occasional views of Wyandotte County Lake. The course is (slightly) hilly, with 700 feet of elevation change per loop.
It’s run through hardwood forest and is 85 percent shaded, with all of it on dirt trails, except for when you cross roads.
. 9-hour time limit.

Multiple well-stocked aid stations on the course, staffed by World Class Trail Nerd Volunteers.
EVENT IS LIMITED TO 130 ENTRANTS, TOTAL.

Mandatory Rule

ALL ENTRANTS MUST CARRY A WATER BOTTLE OR HYDRATION DEVICE TO PARTICIPATE.
While the aid stations are spaced less than 3 miles apart, this is a hilly, hot, and humid trail event.
If you are a roadrunner, a 9-1/2 minute pace on this course will feel like a 7-minute pace on pavement. Therefore, it will take substantially longer to navigate between aid stations.
Carry and use your personal hydration device.
