Giving Back: We LOVE the Switchgrass trails! 2% of everyone's entry fees will be donated back to Switchgrass for trail maintenance/improvement as a token of our appreciation. For additional race information see our website race page. All runs will take place on the Switchgrass Mountain Bike Trail at Wilson State Park. The 100 has the most elevation gain and loss of any 100 miler in Kansas! If you're looking for a challenging course in the flatlands you've found it. The trail is easy to follow rugged single track with very few trees/wooded areas. Beautiful views of Wilson State Park and Wilson Lake are plentiful. KS 100 Milers Elevation Gain Stats: Hell Creek 100 10,120 feet / Hawk Hundred 9,360 feet / Heartland 100 6,000 feet / KRT Extravaganza 100 1,541 feet / Prairie Spirit 100 1,541 feet / Honey Badger 100 1,332 feet. The races will consist of 20(ish) mile loops - one loop for 20 milers, three loops for 100k runners, 5 loops for 100 milers, and 7 loops for 140 milers. Switchgrass is purely single track so we will start the runners about 1/2 from the trailhead to give everyone a chance to spread out. After that it is 100% trail-running. The course will be heavily marked with ribbons and wrong way signs. This is an extremely easy course to follow. Getting off course should be of no issue. There will be two aid stations. One you will have the opportunity to visit twice per loop. The main aid station will be at the start finish and the other will be around 10.5 miles and 16.75 miles of the loop. Both will include your typical aid station items - food (vegan options), water, soda, and electrolyte drink. Both aid stations will have some hot food items at night as well. There will be 1 unmanned water station at mile 5. We will do our best to take care of you, however this is an ultramarathon - you won't be pampered. Please make sure you are adequately prepared.
