The Huff 50K Trail Run and Relay

Saturday, December 30, 2017. Note that entry to Chain O’ Lakes State Park is included in your registration;  you will not have to obtain a parking pass or pay at the gate on race morning.

50K finishers will receive a custom gold colored belt buckle featuring the 2017 HUFF design.  50K Relay finishers will receive a silver colored belt buckle. Both the 50K and the 50K Relay belt buckles are Indiana made.

Now a tradition – One Loop Run (10+/- miles) finishers will receive a medal. The design will be similar to the 2017 50K medal but will be a flat medal rather than a 3D belt buckle.

The 2011 medal (shown) featured the historic one-room brick Stanley Schoolhouse that now serves as the Chain O’ Lakes Nature Center, the torch symbol from Indiana’s state flag and the two bucks with locked antlers discovered in 2007 at Norman Lake in the Park.

Check-In: Packet pick-up will be available the day before starting at 5:30 PM  on Friday night (December 29th) OR starting at 7:30 AM at the race site (Sand Lake Tent) on race day (December 30th).  Packet pick-up is at Running Around Screen Printing in its historic building in Columbia City one block west of the Courthouse.  NE Indiana area runners will be able to pick up their packet starting on Wednesday, December 27 after 3:30 PM at Running Around Screen Printing,

LOCATION: VERY IMPORTANT -  The HUFF 50K  moved to a new venue in northeast Indiana five years ago -  CHAIN O’ LAKES State Park in Albion, Indiana.  The terrain is more technical than before.  The amenities to be to a higher standard as well.  The change is exciting and we think you will find the COL location to be exciting, too.

The Pasta Dinner will be held from 5:45 pm to approximately 8 pm at Chapman’s Tap Room just a block and a half from Running Around Screen Printing directly across from the Whitley County Courthouse at 227 W Van Buren St, Columbia City, IN 46725.  The Tap Room location and the catering were new for 2016; each received great reviews.
