NEW FOR 2021!

The War Hammer 100 is back for 2021 at a new venue and a new course! Make no mistake, however, we are giving you a whole new set of challenges for this new rendition of the War Hammer 100 - one of Kentucky’s toughest ultramarathon running challenges.

We've also added a new 50 Miler and a new 50K race!


The War Hammer 100 has moved south! The race still follows the iconic Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail. In 2021 the race will take place at the Sheltowee Camp in London, Kentucky.
