Ice Age Trail 50 2010 Results – TALON Athletes

In my hunt to find results for last weekend, I found a couple TALON athletes that headed north for the Ice Age Trail 50. This trail run takes place in the southern unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest in La Grange, Wisconsin.

This event was also part of the Montrail Ultra Cup Series so additional fast feet from around the country said, “Let’s Race!”.

Course

The race website describes the course as a tour of the unique geologic features left by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago. Evergreen and deciduous forests, natural prairies, ponds, marshes and kettles are all part of this diverse and beautiful landscape. The terrain ranges from flat and soft grassy double-track to rock and root covered technical trails — with plenty of hills. Challenging for even the most experienced ultrarunner (the course record has been standing for 21 years) – the Ice Age 50 is also an ideal event for first-timers.
