MIDWEST GRAND SLAM OF ULTRARUNNING
The North Face Mohican Trail 100 Mile Run is one of the oldest 100 mile trail races in the United States, 23 years and running strong! Racers run through the gorgeous Mohican Wilderness in north central Ohio and experience some of the most beautiful natural wilderness in the country. The race format is comprised of four completions of a “marathon” length loop. Think the Midwest is flat? Think again! The North Face Mohican Trail 100 Mile Run features a cumulative elevation gain of about 14,920 feet and an equal amount of descent--about the same amount of elevation gain and loss as the Leadville Trail 100 and more than the Vermont 100, both of Grand Slam notoriety. The Mohican 100 is a stunning run that will both challenge and satisfy you!
The Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run is one of the fastest growing 100 mile races in the United States, and in just a few short years Burning River has become one of the largest 100 mile races. Named for the Cuyahoga River, which caught fire in 1969, Burning River is a unique event in several respects. First, the course is a point-to-point event so that runners never pass the same place twice. The course passes through many scenic natural parks in the Cleveland to Akron, Ohio area. In addition, the Burning River 100 Mile Endurance Run carries the distinction of being the USA Track & Field 100 Mile Trail National Championship. Runners choosing to participate in the National Championship are eligible to compete for over $10,000 in prize money, which is awarded in both overall and age group categories.
