Cornfields. Flat. Start a conversation with anybody on their impression of the landscape in Iowa or Nebraska, and these are the two most likely things you’ll hear. Welcome to the Hitchcock 100 Experience. We’re going to change your view of what an Iowa race looks like!

Located just outside of Council Bluffs, the Hitchcock Nature Center is the gracious host to your “must run” ultra in the Midwest. The G.O.A.T.z have partnered with the Pottawattamie County Conservation Board and Hitchcock Nature Center to bring you a challenging and scenic course through the hills and bluffs of the area Lewis & Clark and early settlers named “Council Bluffs”. The course consists of single track to fire road size trail and a small amount of maintenance road–all running through the trees and along the ridges of Hitchcock Nature Center. And although not rocky/technical, you may find yourself wondering, “How did all these hills get to Iowa?”.

Hitchcock Nature Center is 30 minutes northeast of Omaha, NE

100M = 8 laps
101K The Hard Way = Half Marathon THEN the 50M
