VERY SMALL RACE FIELD- grassroots, special event on a lightly traveled beautiful section of the iconic Ice Age Trail


The race is held in Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The majority of the course is on Midwest iconic Ice Age Trail. This is a 1,000 mile footpath contained entirely within the state of Wisconsin. This trail is highly supported by the Ice Age Trail Alliance and dedicated volunteers. The community surrounding this trail is really special. You will pass many lakes, and a thick, dark forest with rich plant life

The trail is one of the only 11 National Scenic Trails in the country. Ancient glaciers carved the path through rocky terrain, open prairies, and peaceful forests.

Gorgeous National Forest with a lot fun activities in the park. Great restaurant an Mondeaux Lodge, boat rental and beautiful trails to explore

**Race entry comes with camping for one runner and one pacer from Thursday to Monday. Register early to be guaranteed a camping spot. One two man tent per runner. One car per runner.

Overflow open camping will be available once individual sites fill up.

If you want to put up a second tent up at Spearhead then you need to purchase a second camping spot. You can do this on the "store" section of ultrasignup. This must be done before race day and before the campsites all fill up

If you are bringing a camper or a group of people you can book a site at a nearby campground. More details on website.

We have booked all the sites in the Spearhead Campground and will assign camping spots. It will be three to four tents per site. The sites are very large. We will send out an email closer to race day to help organizing getting you near friends.

If you have camped in the National Forest you know that campsites are very roomy. Camping is from Thursday through Monday. That way you don't have to rush out after you finish.

***Working on more swag, will post soon. We have done a backpack for two years, with so many repeat runners we are looking into other ideas.

***Race t-shirt
***We purchase the race photos for you

***Your 100 mile race entry is good to be either an official 100 mile or an official 100k finisher. Runners will get back to the start/finish line at the 100k point. You can stop here and be an official 100k finisher, or head back out and go for the 100 mile finish.

Adds an extra challenge to your racing experience!
