Description

MIAKONDA • LAND OF THE CRESCENT MOON

Miakonda, the 6th oldest BSA camp in the United States welcomes you to the annual Miakonda Trail Ultra — a 24-hour race presented by Run Toledo and Dave's Running in Northwest Ohio.

FIELDS ARE LIMITED

One price. No increases...but limited fields, so signup early and secure your spot in what is going to be the regions premier Labor Day weekend Trail Ultra event.

THE NORTH FACE PULLOVER

*Premium apparel items are limited for qualified registrants. After inventory is gone, registrants will receive a different high quality brand. The North Face pullover is available as an add-on to any entry during the registration process.

  • 150 INDIVIDUAL ULTRA, OR 100K SPOTS
  • 25 RELAY TEAMS (4-10 members each)
  • 100 15K SPOTS

You’ll have exclusive access to this private, wooded and scenic location to run 50K, 50 miles, 100K, or 100 miles+ over 24 hours, or enter the 100K as your benchmark race on this rolling trail. Choose the early Saturday Crescent Moon 15k to get a taste for the hidden gem of a course. Some participants choose to run individually over 24 hours and as the member of a team — you just have to signup for both separately. Tent Camping is available, or rent one of Miakonda’s thirteen cabins (contact Erie Shores Council directly to reserve a cabin).

THE SETTING

Camp Miakonda at the DeVilbiss Scout Reservation is a 160 acre resident-type facility and is the 6th oldest Boy Scout camp in the United States. Thirteen rustic cabins are available for you to rent on race day, and a large parade field and ancillary areas are available to setup camp and personal aid stations. Four Adirondack sites (3-sided buildings), tent camping sites, a pool, lake (with fishing), chapel, indoor dining hall (with food service operation), Trading Post, Historical Museum, marked historical trail, and a Frontier Fort are all on-premises and accessible along the course. 

CABIN RENTALS

If you’d like your own (or team) cabin, as opposed to a campsite included with registration, please contact Erie Shores Council directly to reserve your cabin-of-choice while they remain available.

Rentals are available for Friday night and Saturday night

APPAREL & SWAG

Individual ultra and 100K registrants receive a The North Face apparel item (while supplies last), while team relay and 15K runners will receive the high-quality tech shirt.
