History: Started in 1993 as a 50-mile race, the course changed a few times in the first ten years and eventually added a 50-kilometer and 14-mile option. OPSF50|50 was successfully run for twenty years and became known as a tough event that challenged runners of all abilities. Unfortunately, due to external factors, the race was not run in 2013, and its future became uncertain. Knowing OPSF50|50’s storied past and loving a challenging race, Terry Fletcher revived the race in 2014. The course was revamped, and the race is now run in the spring of the year. In 2017, ITRA became the official owner and director of the race.
We believe that OPSF50|50 is the oldest ultra in the state of Indiana, and ITRA is proud to continue its tradition!
