MIDWEST GRAND SLAM OF ULTRARUNNING

Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning

The seventh annual running of the MIDWEST GRAND SLAM OF ULTRARUNNING in 2018 was unique in the history of the event as extremely challenging weather conditions at the Mohican Trail 100 claimed multiple DNFs, including all of the remaining Midwest Grand Slam contenders.  Who will finish the Midwest Grand Slam in 2019 in the quest to complete four or five of the Midwest's showcase 100 mile trail races over the course of a few months?

Kettle Moraine 100 Mile Endurance Run
Mohican Trail 100 Mile Run
Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run
Hallucination 100 Mile Run
• Indiana Trail 100 Mile Run

Continuing in 2019 will be the option to add a fifth 100 mile race, the Indiana Trail 100, to the other Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning events.  Runners who complete the Indiana Trail 100 in addition to the other Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning events will be designated "Super Slammers."  Runners completing the Kettle Moraine, Mohican Trail, Burning River, and Hallucination 100 mile runs will earn the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning award.

2019 promises to be another great year of adventure for those who step up to this unique challenge. If you are an ultrarunner, endurance athlete, adventure racer, marathoner, or just plain crazy individual who is looking to push yourself to new heights of achievement, then the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning is for you.
 
Patterned after the historic and long running 
Grand Slam of Ultrarunning (comprised of the Western States 100, Vermont 100, Leadville Trail 100, and Wasatch Front 100), the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning is an undertaking that requires tremendous dedication, effort, sacrifice, perseverance, and athleticism to complete.

Athletes who successfully complete each of the four or five races in the same calendar year will each receive a handsome natural stone trophy presented at the final event in the series, the Hallucination 100 Mile Run or the Indiana Trail 100 (Super Slammers).

Unlike entry into the Grand Slam of Ultrarunning, which is dependent upon winning an increasingly difficult lottery entry into the Western States Endurance Run, entry into the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning is accessible to all wishing to participate, and the race entry fees of the individual events are much more affordable.  In addition, the relatively close geographic location of the Kettle Moraine, Mohican Trail, Burning River, Hallucination, and Indiana Trail 100 Mile runs will enable many to participate in these events with minimal travel expenses and time commitments (not insignificant in “selling” your adventure to your significant other).  Camping is offered at Kettle Moraine, Mohican, and Hallucination to further enhance race experiences for those desiring convenient start and finish line access and/or low cost overnight accommodations.

If you have read this far, you must be seriously contemplating

the year!)


The Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning registration form must be received by May 31, 2019.  Please be aware
that due to race entrant registration limits at the individual events, one or more of the races could reach their registration limits prior to this deadline, so 2019 Midwest Grand Slammers are encouraged to register early for the events to ensure that registration is available.

As an added bonus for 2019, all Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning Finishers will receive a complimentary entry to the 2019 Stone Steps 50K Trail Race near Cincinnati, OH (stonesteps50k.com).  This is a $50 value, and the opportunity to run a very tough and beautiful 50K trail race as a nice warm down to your 2019 Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning experience!
