Hindsight was born out of dark times known as the Pandemic of 2020. As runners were training and hoping that their race was still going to happen, races continued to be cancelled. Not wanting to ‘waste’ that training, we put together a ‘Fatass’ style event to put our training to good use and named it Hindsight (because hindsight is always 2020 and all we wanted to do was to participate in an event and put the rest of it behind us).
The following year, it was back due to popular demand. In 2022, we made it a formal event. While we have sign-up and formal finish times/results, we will do our best to maintain the grassroots feel to the event.
This is a great event for any runners looking to complete their first Ultra distance, complete the next distance on their list, or want to train for the next ‘A’ race.
The start line is located at the Meadows Park Dog Park in Dixon IL.
It is a 7.85ish mile loop.
4 loops will get you a 50k, 8 loops a 100k, and 13 loops get you 103 (3 extra credit) miles.
The course is a blend of everything except water crossings and mountains. Roughly 50% singletrack, 30% grassy meadows path, and 20% gravel path.
Total elevation for the 100 mile is roughly 6200’ which calculates to just under 60’/mile.
While the course is maintained, expect there to be tree roots, some rocks, ankle rollers, and anything else you would expect to be on a singletrack course.
