WELCOME to the Glacier Ridge Trail (GRT) Ultramarathons and Trail Race Website!
The 2024 race will be held on May 11, 2024.
The GRT will offer four events to provide participants a choice of distances to match their experience, early-season fitness, and season-long goals – the 20 Mile Trail Run, the 50K and 50 Mile Ultramarathons and the 50-Mile 5-person relay. Except for a short stretch at the start and near the end, the 20 Mile and 50K events will be entirely on an exceptional single-track trail. In addition to the single-track, the 50 Mile course also includes a section of very runnable, yet very hilly, double-track/fire roads through beautiful hardwood forests.
This race is held annually to celebrate our local trails and to provide a donation of all net proceeds to Moraine State Park, Jennings Environmental Center and McConnells Mill State Park. Our generous race sponsors have offset many of the race costs so that $131,000 could be provided to these parks over the race’s lifespan of twelve years.
