Description

Imagine a run where the beauty of the wilderness surrounds you. Where only a few buildings dot the landscape and none block out the sky. Where cell phones won't ring and distant traffic can't be heard. A one-of-a-kind race that travels along a National Scenic Byway that winds its way through the Superior National Forest on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Granite outcroppings, roadside ponds, and bubbling creeks welcome you to the great outdoors.

The Ham Run takes place miles from the nearest town in a pristine wilderness where moose, wolves, and deer roam. Eagles soar overhead and loons can be heard calling in the distance. Nature surrounds you with each step you take on this journey.

There are very few places on the earth as beautiful as the Gunflint Trail and there is no other race course like it in the world. Taking place during the forest's green-up just after Earth Day, it is only natural the Ham Run is a green race. Every effort to conserve resources and leave no trace is taken. As an Endurance Magazine's Race without a Trace, the Ham Run is changing the world one step at a time by implementing environmentally friendly practices at the event.
