The Kansas Rails-to-Trails 100 Mile is run on the Prairie Spirit Trail and is a beautiful "rails-to-trails" course that runs through numerous quaint little towns. Starting at Celebration Hall in Ottawa, runners will do a short (appox. 2 mile) northbound out-and-back, then travel south to Iola and back north to the finish in Ottawa. The course is primarily on a crushed limestone trail, with asphalt paths as you travel through each small town. Manned and unmanned aid stations will be approximately every 5 miles (with no greater distance than approximately 6 miles) and the course is easily accessible to crew. It's a great event for first timers, as it's a flat and relatively easy course. It's also the perfect course for experienced runners wanting to set a PR. The atmosphere will be family friendly with plenty of places for your crew to hang out and relax while cheering you on. Pacers WILL BE allowed for the last 60 miles (approx.) of the event.
