The TRYON FARM TRAIL 5/10/50K RUN is located in Northern Indiana, just one hour from Chicago.
The course is a 10k loop through majestic grasslands, sloping dunes and towering beech and oakwood forests. Approximately 60% of the course is on densely wooded single track that follows existing deer paths. The remainder of the trail brings you through protected native grasslands of prairies and hayfields. At one point, the course takes you over a sod-roofed modern house that has been built into the landscape. The trail also includes a couple of small water crossings so expect to get your feet a bit wet and muddy. Rest assured you will not be running the pavement on this day!
The Start/Finish line will feature complimentary healthy treats from race sponsors CLIF BAR and ORGANIC VALLEY, including organic granola, yogurts and other replenishing foods and beverages. Additionally a delicious Hot Lunch, Craft Beers from Award-Winning Shoreline Brewery, and Pizza from Rolling Stonebaker are waiting for runners and spectators! Free overnight camping is available for 50K Ultrarunners. (Contact Race Director to make arrangements.)
- 50K Ultrarunners will receive a heavyweight Tryon Farm Trail ZIP-UP HOODIE Sweatshirt plus Complimentary Food and Beverages.
- 10K Runners will receive a TFT T-SHIRT and one Complimentary Beverage.
- 5K Run/Walkers will receive a TFT T-SHIRT and a PAT ON THE BACK!
- Kid Runners will receive a TFT KIDDO T-SHIRT (Kid's course is approximately 1K)
***ALL RUNNERS who complete the course will receive the iconic, hand-crafted Tryon Farm Trail FINISHER'S MEDAL!***
