We really have enjoyed the past 3 years of the Feral Hog 50k and wanted to pass on our sincerest gratitude for your support in helping us to create a challenging yet rewarding event that also gives back to the community.
That is why it is bitter sweet that I must announce that our real jobs are taking us out west. We are very happy for this new opportunity to move into the high desert mountains where there are miles and miles of trails to explore but we are sad to leave behind such great people.
We will need some time to settle into our new place and real life job roles and we will not have the time nor resources to put on the Feral Hog 50k in 2019. We do hope that you enjoy the year off from the suffer and take this opportunity to go out and explore and make your own adventures!
We have made some great friends and hope to continue those friendships and plan to announce the future of the Feral Hog 50k in the fall of 2019. We hope that you will continue to support the Feral Hog 50k in the coming years.
Mary and Mike Peterson
About the event
The Feral Hog 50k is a one loop course traversing the backpack and perimeter trails of East Fork State Park. The majority of this course is on trails that were first blazed by a man training to traverse the world on foot, Steve Newman, aka the World Walker.
Event's current local time: 5:58 AM CT
This course has it all! While challenging, it is still an obtainable first ultra as there will be plenty of aid stations and a generous cut-off time. The terrain will also provide a nice variety of challenges to keep you entertained. You’ll get to experience vista views, miles of well-worn paths, rolling hills, some steep short climbs, a few miles of flat terrain with uncertain soil and of course a few river/creek crossings!
The best part, this event is only ONE loop!! So, whether you are an optimist or a pessimist, once you are half way through the course you will have the same mileage to finish as you would to get back to the start if you quit, making that decision to DNF less alluring!
