Course Description

Midwest Endurance Race Co brings you the first Mile 0 Trail Race of the Midwest! The Flint Hills Trail is the longest of Kansas’ 3,000-plus miles of public trails. Its history is equally impressive, and a testament to the dedication, generosity and ingenuity of a small handful of Kansans who saw the possibilities for a multi-use, destination trail. For over a century, trains traveled what’s now the Flint Hills Trail. The last train ran the line in the early 1990s. Rails and ties were soon removed. Trees and brush quickly reclaimed the pathway.

The race will be held in mid-April when the weather is typically cool and sunny, although Kansas weather can be unpredictable. Just an hour south of Kansas City you will find The Flint Hills to be a beautiful escape from the big city.

Aid Stations

Aid Stations: Manned aid stations are fully stocked with water, hammer nutrition heed electrolyte drinks, snack foods, sandwiches, chips, candy, hammer gels, and more.
