The Ice Age Trail 50 is one of the oldest continuously-running ultras in the country. A course like no other, you’ll run in dense deciduous forests, under tall pines, over rocky ridges and across open prairies – and see lakes, kettles, kames, erratics and other natural features left when the glaciers finally retreated from Wisconsin more than 10,000 years ago.

Scenic trail through rolilng hills and woods of Kettle Moraine State Forest. 12 hour time limit. Limit 550 (total in the 50 mile and the 50K combined). Always second Saturday in May. The 50 mile run begins in the finish area. To calibrate the distance to exactly 50 miles, Deb Vomhof and her team (Trail Marking and Race Course Management), measures and re-measure distances periodically, as subtle changes are continuously made to the 50 mile race course. While the course tops numerous hills, none of them are extremely long or overly steep in nature, but they are incessant. The terrain consists of mostly single track dirt, rocky and tree rooted trail that runs through pinewoods, hardwood forests, and rolling prairie lands, a little bit of everything. The 50 mile course will be marked with YELLOW ground flags. We hope you enjoy our little bit of heaven.
