Covid-19 Update - Sept. 13th: As of today, the race is still a go for Oct. 11th, with some modifications; if the race were to be canceled, all entries would be rolled over to 2021. Please read the current modifications:
The Glacial Trail 50 is Wisconsin's fall ultra, held in the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest. Starting in Greenbush, runners will take a connector trail from town out to the Ice Age Trail, which comprises most of the course. Hopefully fall colors will be at their peak!
