Please note the price increase for all races, effective 7/31. This will be the
only price increase.
3) Cap – The limit for the 2017 Indiana Trail 100 will be 400 runners. It is at the race committee’s discretion to determine the limits for 100 mile, 100k, and 50 mile entries, respectively. We will provide advanced notice if we decide to close down one of the fields due to the maximum limit.
It is your responsibility to register before we reach our cap. The past two years we’ve filled up around 2/1 and were contacted by approximately 200 people trying to get into the race afterwards.
4) Waiting List – As soon as the 2017 Indiana Trail 100 reaches its limit of 400 runners, we will implement a waiting list. The runners will be placed on the waiting list in the order they sign up; the first on the waiting list will be the first to take the place of someone that drops out.
5) No Deferrals/No Refunds/No Transfers – There are no deferrals, no refunds and no transfers for any reason, including injury. However, we will allow runners to switch from the 50 miler to the 100k or 100 miler, and vice versa, after you have signed up.
6) Western States – Please note that the Indiana Trail 100 has been a Western States qualifying race the past three years. It is our expectation that we will again be a qualifying race in 2017 but we await WSER’s announcement later in the year for all qualifying races.
7) Midwest Super Slam – Please note that the 2017 Indiana Trail 100 is part of the Midwest Super Slam.
8) Buckles – In 2017, we will again provide sub 24 hour buckles along with traditional buckles for runners that finish 100 miles over 24 hours but less than 30 hours. The 100k and 50 mile finishers will receive a medal.
9) July weekend training run – We will host a group training run(s) on July
15-16 for all IT100 entrants, prospective entrants, pacers and volunteers. We’ve
done this for the past three years and it has been very popular and a lot of
fun. This will consist of a one loop run (20 miles) on Friday night, a two loop
run (40 miles) on Saturday morning/afternoon, and a one loop run (20 miles) on
Please remember that this is an FA event at no cost. While we will have some
aid station support, you should expect to be self-supportive (bring your own
supplies) at all times. Also, since this is at the height of the campground
season, we won’t be able to put a lot of course flags out. You’ll need to pay
attention to the course markers, although there will be several runners on the
course to help guide you if needed. If you plan on camping at the park for the
7/15 – 7/16 weekend, you might consider making reservations with Chain O’Lakes
State Park soon.
If you’re in the middle of training for a 50 or 100 mile run this will be a
great opportunity to run with several other IT 100 runners and get in up to 80
miles in a 27 hour time period. Please see the following link for more details

10) Weekly Training Runs – We will advise once the Sunday morning training runs begin again in the fall. We usually start back up at the beginning of September and then switch to Saturdays in December.

12) Site Protocol – Our website and Facebook Forum/Event Page is specific to the Indiana Trail 100. Topics discussed include ultra running in general but the focus is primarily on our event as an informational guide to our runners.
We do not permit advertisements of non-ultra running events/sites or their sponsors. While we have great respect for those that compete in shorter distance running events or triathlons, our site does not focus on these types of events, nor do our runners. We will remove all material, links, etc., that don’t meet the aforementioned criteria.
