The third annual 2013 Pumpkin Holler 100 Mile. 100K (62.2 miles), 50K (31.1 mile) and the new 25K will take part in the beautiful J.T. Nickel Preserve. The Nickel Preserve is a 17,000 acre remote area just north of the Illinois river. It is the largest private protected area in the Ozarks.
The surrounding areas include are characterized by steep canyons and narrow ridges. The course consists of gravel country two lane roads with several hills. It is home to grassy prairies, an extensive system of tributaries feed the Illinois river to the south. The tree covered trail will be bursting with yellows, and reds and browns as the trees are just beginning to turn colors and show off their magnificent fall foliage. We simply believe that we have found a little slice of heaven in our "perfect world".
