The Abel Wilder foot race (100km) is the Grandad of them all, AKA, the badass in the family. Born in 1784 Abel was the Great Grandfather of Almanzo Wilder.
This 100km foot race will lead you through the most scenic landscape in Southern Minnesota. The Abel is set to start on Saturday May 16th at 5:00 AM and closes at 9PM, giving runners 16 hours to complete the roughly 64 mile course.
Runners of the Abel will be required to carry water, food, a headlamp, something reflective, and a cell phone. There will be a mid-point check in where we will have water and your drop bag. Drop bags must be provided at check-in on Friday/Saturday night in Spring Valley.
