Thank you to all runners, volunteers, and sponsors for making the 7th running of the Glacier Ridge Trail Ultramarathon & Trail Race a huge success! Weather started off cool and evolved into a surprisingly beautiful day, with fewer mud spots than 2016…thank goodness. See the following link for the Overall Finish List! — 2017 Race Results. Have a splendid summer filled with great times on the trails! See you in 2018!

The 2017 Headline Sponsor for the race is The Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau. Check out our other sponsors and contacts to support who race.
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 30K 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 30K 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.
