Course: This event is a combination of 4 trails at Kickapoo State Park. This event is not for the weak. We invite you to run, jog, walk or crawl 20.20 miles through this park and enjoy the trails, your friends, while testing your strength, stamina and endurance.
The central checkpoint will be at the Ironwood Shelter, you will have the opportunity to get granola bars and water here.

Trail 1: Start with the Wilderness Out and Back. The 6-mile course, which is 95% trail, heads east out of the park before turning into the woods, where the adventure really begins. You will climb and descend steep hills, cross creeks and bridges, and if you are lucky, see deer and other wildlife. This is a scenic and challenging run

Trail 2: Next up is the Clear Pond Trail The 5K run is a rustic trail that runs alongside clear pond and takes you down spooky hollow and up the Stairway to 7. Follow the signs for the Clear (Pond) Trail

Trail 3: Then mosey on over to the Mountain Goat Course for an out and back. Run down cemetery hill and up the next hill and take a hard left to run behind the fairgrounds and run across the newest Kickapoo Rail Trail Bridge and run the forgotten Moutain Goat Loop then come back to the check point.

Trail 4: Last is the North Riverview trail. This will be the last out and back. Head West and turn right by the landing and venture North up the hill, follow the NV sign which take you around the west side of clear pond and make your way back to the checkpoint to finish.

This will be a timed event. Starting at 8:00 am, you will have 8 hours to complete all four trails. Bring a hydration pack or snack if you need them

AWARDS: Each Participant will get a Hoodie and you will be awarded a medal embedded coaster for each trail you complete
