Chubb Trail Races
50k, 25k, 8m

The trail varies from a gravel service road to a mostly dirt trail along the Meramec River, to a mile-long series of climbs, to finally a rolling trail that winds through the hills of the Meramec River. There are no stream crossings.  If the Meramec River is well above flood stage then the race will be rerouted (high water route).

Course

The race is run on the popular Chubb trail. The course varies from a gravel service road, to a mostly dirt trail along the Meramec River, to a mile-long series of climbs, to finally a rolling trail that winds through the hills of the Meramec River. There are no stream crossings. If the Meramec River is flooded, the race will use the high-water route. There are two railroad crossings, and extreme caution must be taken because the trains come through this area at a high rate of speed. Runners may see deer, turkey and other wildlife throughout this trail run.

Refunds/Drops/Deferrals/Waitlist

Unfortunately there are no refunds if you can't make it. The money from registrations is used for all the race day activities. Additional money will be donated back to the trail system or organizations in the STL area that help make our trails beautiful

  • You may drop from the 50k to the 25k up to two weeks prior to race day. Any drops after this or on race day are allowed, but you will not be eligible for awards (Overall or Age Group).

  • Sorry no waitlist.

Bib Transfers

We will allow bib transfers until approximately two weeks before the race. If you choose to give or sell your registration to another runner, it will be up to you to make that transaction. A bib transfer is a 2-step process that must be completed by the original registrant AND the recipient (not the Race Director) through UltraSignUp. If someone shows up on race day and has not completed this process, they will not be entered in the race. If you are selling your registration to another runner, it is up to you to collect the money from the buyer. Funds will not be transferred via UltraSignup.

Swag

All finishers will receive a medal, beer and grilled food for post-race libations and great swags item. Swag is announced as it is confirmed.

RACE DIRECTORS

Greg Lauman, Ted Gruener & Barb Gruener

Greg and Ted actively participated in many SLUG events in the 90s and have completed a variety of ultras including 100 milers. Barb was a high school/college track runner that gravitated to run numerous road marathons, a 100 miler and participates in many local trail races today.  With kids off to college they are all looking forward to giving back and continuing the great tradition of Double Chubb.

Fun facts: Ted once came out early with another runner and ran an extra loop before Double Chubb in prep for Kettle Moraine 100, likely making him one of the few known Triple Chubb finishers.

On his second try to earn a buckle at the Leadville Trail 100 MTB (under 12 hrs.) Greg squeaked in with a finishing time of 11:58:56. Needless to say, it was a nail biter of a finish for him and his crew / friends watching.
