50Stater Marathon/Ultra Series (IL): The Potawatomi Trail Runs (150M/100M/50M)

Photo Credit: Perkin Park District website

Very generous cutoff time of 34 hrs for the 50miler and 100miler. Please message me if interested. Let's go run!


Planned Itinerary:

Fly from NJ to St Louis, MO - STL is closer to the race location than Chicago
Bag Taum Sauk, MO State High Point (just a drive up)
If there's time, check out Mina Sauk Falls
Drive to Pekin, IL, setup camp (McNaughton Park), packet pickup, pre-race dinner

Race Day!!! Run Crazy, Run Happy! Haha, get to sleep at camp if done before the 34 hrs cutoff

Race organizers may have free breakfast as well
If I am still mobile, drive around St Louis, check out The Arch
Fly back to NJ from STL

    50-mile Potawatomi Trail Run - Done! I still can't believe it took me 20hrs 54mins but it is the result of the decisions I made on this race. Run and learn.

      Hmmm reschedule your DC race next year and let's do this one. You can even sleep for 8 hrs then continue on. Just imagine you are running 2 marathons but have an 8 hrs rest in between. =)
