Course Description & Aid Stations

The Kansas Rails-to-Trails Extravaganza is run on the Prairie Spirit Trail and is a beautiful "rails-to-trails" course that runs through numerous quaint little towns.
The 100 Mile, 50 Mile and 50K course start at Celebration Hall in Ottawa with a short northbound out-and-back (100mile: approx 2mi, 50mile: approx. 4mi, 50K: approx. 1mi), then travel south to their turnaround (100mile: Iola, 50mile: Garnett, 50K: Richmond) and back north to the finish in Ottawa.
The 100K, Marathon, and Half Marathon start on the trail in Ottawa and will head south to their turnaround (100K: Welda, Mar: Richmond, 1/2Mar: Princeton) and back north to the finish in Ottawa.

The course is primarily on a crushed limestone trail, with asphalt paths as you travel through each small town. Manned and unmanned aid stations will be approximately every 5 miles (with no greater distance than approximately 6 miles) and the course is easily accessible to crew. It's a great event for first timers, as it's a flat and relatively easy course. It's also the perfect course for experienced runners wanting to set a PR. The atmosphere will be family friendly with plenty of places for your crew to hang out and relax while cheering you on. Pacers WILL BE allowed for the last half (approx.) of the event.

Aid Stations: Manned aid stations are fully-stocked with water, electrolyte drink & snack-type foods, unmanned aid stations with water only. Approximate distance between aid stations is 5 miles with no distance greater than a little over 9 miles between manned aid stations, all manned aid stations will have drop bag access.
