The Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning was established in 2012 and is comprised of completing any four of the midwest’s premier 100-mile trail races. Runners completing all five races are designated “Super Slammers.”
2023 promises another great year of adventure for those who step up to this unique challenge. 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.
Suppose you are an ultrarunner, endurance athlete, adventure racer, marathoner, or just plain crazy individual looking to push yourself to new heights of achievement. In that case, the Midwest Grand Slam of Ultrarunning is for you. Athletes who successfully complete each of the four or five races (for Super Slammers) in the same calendar year will each receive a handsome natural stone trophy presented at the final event in the series, the Indiana Trail 100.
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 (provided you register for the individual events before any registration limits are reached!), and the race entry fees for the events are much more affordable. In addition, the proximity to the Mohican Trail, Kettle Moraine, Burning River, Hallucination, and Indiana Trail 100-mile will enable many to participate in these events with minimal travel expenses and time commitments.
Camping is offered at Mohican, Kettle Moraine, Hallucination, and Indiana Trail to enhance race experiences for those desiring convenient start and finish line access and/or low-cost overnight accommodations.
