Illinois Trail Ultra Grand Slam
Finish all four of these fine trail ultramarathons and you are an Illinois Trail Ultra Grand Slam finisher! No extra entry fees or paperwork needed. Pretty easy, eh?
What’s the prize? The four race directors are still working on that…but it will be worthwhile and cool. All Grand Slam finishers will get the award and the overall male and female winners (lowest average finish place in their respective M/F category) will get an extra Grand Slam prize! Awards will be given out at the conclusion of the Farmdale race. We’ll post the final “Slammers” on this web page too.
2010 Grand Slam Events

What counts as a “finish”? That is left up to the individual race director. If the race director lists you as an official finisher of the race—you are a finisher. Do that four times and you are a Slammer!
