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.
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 will be no deferrals, no refunds, and no transfers for any reason, including injury. However, we will allow runners to switch from the 50 miler to 100K or 100 miler, and vice versa, after you have signed up. More details to follow.
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 be a qualifying race in 2017 as well but we await WSER’s announcement and confirmation for ours and all other qualifying races.
7) Midwest Super Slam – Please note that the 2017 Indiana Trail 100 is part of the 2017 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 group training run(s) in mid-July as we’ve done for the past three years. This will consist of a one loop run (20 miles) on Friday night, a two loop run (40 miles) on Saturday morning, and a one loop run (20 miles) on Saturday night. If you’re in the middle of training for a 100 mile run, this will be a good opportunity to run with several other IT 100 runners and get in up to 80 miles in a 27 hour time period. We’ll provide more details as the event date approaches.
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.
11) Trail Maintenance – Summer is a busy time of year for trail maintenance at Chain O’Lakes. Please let us know if you’re interested in helping us maintain current trails, along with building new ones. Please contact Jerry Diehl at firstname.lastname@example.org
