The Race That Brings You Back Home

The Beechwood Farm Family has been so gracious in wanting to host our event in 2021. We are introducing this first year event and we hope to make it an annual event! We have 4 races lined up: 48 Hours, 24 Hours, 50k, & 5k and they are all being run "down on the farm" This course will be run on a very flat 5k course with one small hill on the back of the sunflower hill. The course is 95% packed dirt with a small section of rock/grass. 
  • Finishers of 100 miles in the 24 Hour and 48 Hour receive a Country Sized belt buckle! 



  • 48 Hours Starts Friday at 8pm
  • 24 Hours Starts Saturday at 8am
  • 50k Starts Saturday at 8am
  • 5k Starts Sunday at 9am



  • During registration you will be offered the option to select your parking or camping needs for the weekend. 100% of the Camping/Parking funds go directly to the host family of Beechwood Farms.
    • Day Use Parking Lot will be located adjacent to the Beechwood Park Entrance (not located on the course so if you are running a longer distance it is advised to choose the car camping option) This option is advisable for the 5k race and 50k runners that do not need to go by their car. There will be a drop bag location near the starting line to have personal food/items but no pop ups. That is designated for the Car Camping area. 
    • Car Camping Lot will be located right on the course and you will have room for one car and a 10 x 10 canopy spot.
    • RV Camping Lot will be located right at the entrance of Beechwood Farm and the course will begin and finish its loop right at your location. There are only 40 RV spots available.
