All runs will take place on the single-track, Switchgrass Mountain Bike Trail, at Wilson State Park.  If you’ve never run this trail you are in for a treat.  Switchgrass is very hilly, but not overly rugged.  Much of the trail runs directly beside beautiful Wilson Lake, the clearest lake in Kansas.  The trail is totally exposed, with no heavily wooded areas.   This makes for beautiful views, but also total exposure to the weather!  We are very excited to give you the opportunity to run on this amazing trail and believe it is the perfect addition to the other amazing ultras being put on in KS.
