Aid Station Supplies

Below is a list of all items that will be delivered to the aid station locations including equipment, supplies, food and first aid items.  Also listed are some suggested items you may want to bring for your personal comfort while you are working the aid station – keep in mind some people will be out there as little as a few hours and some all day or even all weekend, so please prepare accordingly (you are welcome to eat aid station food, but you may tire of this and may want to consider packing your own).  Please feel free to add your own personal touches to the aid stations, provide additional food items and more – please just let us know what you plan on providing additional.  Keep in mind the lists below are a guide and there may be some slight variations.

Zumbro 2020

Thank you very much for your interest in the 11th Annual Zumbro Endurance Run 100 Mile, 50 Mile & 17 Mile.  The race was successfully held from its inception in 2009 through 2016, but experienced a couple of really tough years the past two.  The 17 mile race was canceled in 2018 and the entire event / all distances were canceled in 2019 - both years cancellations due to historic early Spring blizzards.  The race has historically been held between the first and second weeks in April and unable to be permitted later in the month due to the Spring turkey hunt.  We are still working through details with the Minnesota DNR for the 2020 event and will share more information with you this Fall regarding the 2020 race, including the race date, course / logistics information, and the date that registration will open. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  Race Director John Storkamp,

More About the Area:
The Zumbro Endurance Run 100MI, 50MI and 17MI trail races take place within the Zumbro River Bottoms Management Unit in Southeastern Minnesota’s Bluff Country – just outside of the tiny village of Theilman, MN approximately 1:45 from Minneapolis – St.Paul, MN.  The races start and finish at the West Assembly / Horse Campground Area.  Generally speaking the Zumbro River Bottoms Management Unit lies within a portion of the Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood Forest – an expansive 1.7 million acre tract of Minnesota hardwood forest on the Northern edge of the Driftless Region which is mainly characterized by its tall bluffs and deeply carved river valleys. This “bluff country” is rugged, hauntingly beautiful and provides the perfect venue for 100, 50 or 17 miles of trail running – while this is certainly not an “easy” trail race it can still be a great choice for your first 100, 50 or 17, that is if you are ready for a good amount of climbing / elevation gain.  This is a laid back, old school, low-key trail race hosted by ultrarunners for ultrarunners.
