 About our event sponsor Phil Nichols and "2:18 Run" 

The Event

Prairie Inn Harriers running club is pleased to present the 33rd Annual Harriers 2:18 Run Elk/Beaver Ultras.

The Course

The fast and flat 10 kilometer trail circuit around Elk and Beaver Lakes is considered as one of the premiere races of its type in North America.  Runners complete 10 laps for the 100K division, 8+ laps for 50 Miles and 5 laps for 50K while walkers complete 4 laps for 40K.

The venue is all trails, very flat, has good footing, and is in excellent condition. Definitely a runner-friendly, P.R. type course!

Records

Many North American open and age class records have been set at the Elk/Beaver race including the Andy Jones 100K course record of 6:46:09 and Ray Piva’s North American M70 record of 10:49:41 both set in 1997.  In 2000 Lori Bowden set an open women’s 50K Canadian Record of 3:34:18 while Jim Swadling has established four 50K Canadian age class records at E/B, M50 – 3:26:20 in 2000, M55 – 3:32:39 in 2003, M65 – 3:51:44 in 2012 and M70 - 4:17:15 in 2017.  In 2010 Ellie Greenwood won the E/B 100K race outright and, in doing so, she set a trail World Record of 7:36:40 for open women.  Keith Wakelin set a 50 Mile Canadian M70 age category record of 7:43:57 in 2019.

Perks

The race attracts some of the most high performance ultramarathoners in Canada and the United States.  It is an excellent qualifier for 100 Mile events.
