Welcome to the 22nd year of the Potawatomi Trail Runs. Let's come back stronger than ever!

Course Description

The course is a 10 mile loop consisting mostly of single track dirt, some prairies, several creek crossings, and endless rolling hills. Elevation gain per 10 mile loop is 1600 feet. Mother Nature controls the creeks; your feet may stay dry but probably not. It is not uncommon to see deer, turkey, birds, owls, and other critters. We will keep you well fed and hydrated along your journey with aid stations at mile 3, 6, and the start/finish.
