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!
All racers will get a finishers medal. If you run 100 miles or more you get a buckle. We will have overall male and female awards for every race.

My husband, Michael Eriks and I are the Race Directors.
Laura has been racing ultras since 2009 and has completed almost 100 ultra distance races. With over thirty 100 mile finishes. Michael is also a ultra runner and 50 states finisher. He has finished several 100 mile races. And ran across Indiana and biked back. He also was first male and second overall at the Shawnee Hills 100 mile race.
Our 15 year old son Logan finished his first 50k at Pumpkin Holler at the age of nine. He walked the entire race. Since then he has finished several races. Including several 50 and 50k races so far.
We are a family who trains, races and supports each other. We understand the most important person out there is the person racing. And we will take the best care of you at a top notch event. We will treat you like family. Most of our dearest friends were met out on the race course. We are here for you. We want to make this your favorite event. Please don't hesitate to ask a question. Or if you have a special request we will do our very best to make that happen. Looking forward to meeting you all and giving you your finishers award.
Laura, Mike and Logan
We will also be adding the option to buy Arrowhead Endurance Run gear. We have hoodies, half zip long sleeve pullovers and sweet trucker hats.
Arrowhead Endurance Run is excited to be partnering with Soles4Souls. This initiative collects gently used shoes and repurposes them to be a sustainable income for families living in poverty in developing countries. We will have a donation box at the race. Please consider bringing a used pair of shoes. If you have any questions about this charity organization please ask.
