This will be a 10 Mile Trail Race on the Wabash Heritage Trail in West Lafayette, IN, heading from Fort Ouiatenon to West Lafayette and back (map to come soon). Most of the trail is single track, but there is a short section along a paved rural road, and also a section of paved trail within the city limits. The multiple surfaces mean that you need to be prepared for pavement, as well as muddy single-track trail. Mother Nature dictates the condition of the unpaved conditions as well as the weather.
Registration is not yet open. Online entries will close when the maximum number of participants has been met or at midnight on August 9, 2014. Late registration at packet pick-up or on the day of the event is available if the maximum number of participants has not been met.
Due to the single track nature of the majority of the course, we will close entries after we receive confirmation of 300 participants. No wait-listing is available.
Early entry guarantees a race shirt. Late entry shirts are not guaranteed. However, everyone who enters will get an accurately measured course and a finish time. Post race refreshments will be provided.
Shirts this year are singlet/tanks which will have the race logo screen printed on the front. Men’s and Women’s sizing is available when you register. The men’s shirt is running true to size — similar to your technical t-shirt size. The women’s cut is slightly smaller and we recommend ordering a size larger than you normally would.
Age group awards will be awarded on decadal increments
You may pick up your race number and packet from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Friday, August 15, 2014, at Fleet Fleet Sports in West Lafayette.
Race day packet-pickup will be available at the starting line from 6:00 AM until 7:00 AM on August 16.
