The Sixteenth Farmdale Endurance Trail Runs will be held October 9-10, 2021. Come join us for the 10K and ½ marathon, or the 30-mile, 50-mile or 100-mile Ultras!
Located in East Peoria, IL, Farmdale is an 800-acre hidden gem maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers and volunteer organizations. With miles and miles of meandering single-track trail, service road and open prairie, Farmdale is the perfect stage for a premier trail race. If you enjoy trails and haven’t been to Farmdale, what are you waiting for? Here’s your chance!
Start Times/Time Limits/Drop Downs
**Subject to change**10K and Half Marathon races will start at 8 AM with a 9 hour time limit. The 30-mile race begins at 7 AM and the 50-mile and 100-mile races will start at 5 AM with a 32 hour cutoff.
As a Runner we understand some days the body and mind do not work as we want or need. For that reason we will allow drop downs. For example, if you are signed up & running the 100 mile but decide you can only complete 50 miles. You must stop at Mile 50 to be presented an award. Just to be clear - The difference between race costs will NOT be refunded if this occurs. Awards will not be granted if you quit at mile 60, 70,80 or 90. Those will be considered a DNF.
Awards & Swag
Participants will receive a shirt and finisher medal.
50 & 100 mile finishers receive buckles.
50 & 100 milers will receive some extra swag yet TBD but it will be worth it!
Camping is available beginning at noon on 10/8. *Porta potties will be on site*
Trailers/Campers - The park can accommodate a few but space is limited. You must get permission in advance. Priority will be given to those running the longer distances.
We'll try to have a good variety of food at the aid stations in hope that everyone will find something to fit their fancy. However, for those with strict dietary restrictions, we recommend bringing your own food. We can happily cook it for you!
Pacers are allowed after 1st loop completed.
Crew access is at the Start/Finish Aid Station only
