WHY IRONBULL ULTRA TRAIL?
Rib Mountain is a beauty to behold any season of the year. Whether you call it home, or if you are just passing through, you can’t help but admire this glacially eroded creation. But why observe from a distance what you can experience through all your senses. Welcome to IRONBULL Ultra Trail.
What better way to discover than to dive right in the twists and climbs, running under a bounty of colored hardwoods on the gorgeous trails of Rib Mountain.
DO YOU HAVE THE ENDURANCE AND STRENGTH TO FINISH THIS CHALLENGE?

25k & 50k: The 25k adventure consists of a loop throughout Rib Mountain terrain and the 50k adventure consists of two loops. The course includes private property trails exclusive to this event! Gear bags will be delivered to aid stations. Racers will be challenged with plenty of climbing - so be sure to prepare for the ups and downs, with each loop including a couple bonus miles (approximately 16 mile / 26 k loop) and encompassing 3400 feet of elevation gain per loop. Aid stations are between 2.5 miles and 4.0 miles apart.
15k: The 15k adventure immerses runners into Rib Mountain with a sampling of the vertical challenge (1400 feet). Runners start and end on State Park Speedway’s race track, gallop through the woods, climb to the top of Rib Mountain, and circle around the quarry. The course includes private property trails exclusive to this event! Two aid stations along the route support runners. This course provides trail runners a true trail challenge with highlights of Rib Mountain State Park, perfect to introduce new trail runners to the sport.
