Chubb 25 & 50K Trail Race

Chubb 25 & 50K Trail Race


SLUGS Stand strong, do not cower in fear like many others. There is no rational reason this race should be cancelled due to the C-virus, like many other races have been.
I'm interested in a bib if anyone still has one they're looking to transfer.
Thank you for a great race, especially to the volunteers. The volunteers were so encouraging and helpful. I wouldn’t have made it without them.
We have done Berryman before, but never Chubb. We had a blast! Great race, awesome volunteers (thanks for the beer on the trail and that awesome snake bite at the aid station), and a gorgeous trail!
Awesome race....first SLUG race and definitely not my last! Thanks to all the volunteers and race crew for being out in the conditions keeping us runners happy!
Much thanks to John for a great-if-brutal race. Thanks to all the fantastic volunteers who make it possible, with a special shoutout to John Cash and Meghan McCarrick for taking a little extra care with a struggling runner (or two) at the second turnaround.
Congrats to all the finishers, and my apologies to my friends I didn't stick around to cheer in to the finish; the rain, cold front, and disagreeable muscles were just too much for me to cope with. And if you greeted me by name on the course and I reciprocated with a blank stare rather than a return personal greeting, I'm sorry for that, too. I'd like to blame it on pain and oxygen deprivation, but the truth is that sometimes I just suck. Hope to see everybody again next year!

This is the official page of the Historic Chubb & Double Chubb Trail Race. There are no stream crossings.

The trail itself 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. If the Meramec River is well above flood stage then the race will be rerouted. 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.

Operating as usual

Results are now posted on Ultrasignup. That essentially was my last duty as Race Director for Chubb.

So, time to get sappy & move on. I want to thank Saint Louis Ultrarunners Group (SLUGS) for taking a chance on a guy (who had never ran an ultra) to lead a race as prestigious as this. I’m not sure they knew how inexperienced I was but I guess it was better than the alternative of not having a race. Since taking it over I hope I’ve left my mark on it in the form of BOCO Gear swag, leg pain, 4 Hands Brewing Company beer, and physical & mental scars.

Thanks to all the volunteers who have helped me look like I knew what I was doing. You all are the true heroes. Waking up crazy early & dealing with injured/hungry runners all with a smile on your faces.

Thanks to the hundreds of runners who paid money, trained, fell, got up, & ran again. Before I started this I was so concerned with my own results in races, but thanks to watching you succeed I’ve found it waaaaay more gratifying than any PR of my own.

I’m leaving this race in great hands with the 3 new RDs. They have a wealth of knowledge and will no doubt take this race to the next level.

See you on the trail.

Get ready for hills.
Due to the river levels and projected crest tomorrow, we will have to keep the race on the West Tyson side and enact the Quadruple Bypass route for the 3rd straight time. Getting ridiculous, but as they say, you can play a pretty picnic but you can’t predict the weather (🎶 ).

Packet Pickup is tonight at 4 Hands starting at 5:30pm. First round is on us. Hope to see you there.

RD’s race report is up in UltraRunning Magazine. Thanks to the runners and volunteers for making it a great day.

Double Chubb: Almost Normal - Ultrarunning Magazine The 22nd Chubb 25 & 50K was held on April 17, 2021 after a hiatus in 2020. In the months leading up to the start, I wasn’t sure if the St. Louis County restrictions would allow us to run our normal race with a mass start, a smorgasbord of ultra snacks and a post-race barbeque. However, since I am ...


Well, I think we can all agree that today’s weather is much worse than Saturday’s.

Working on getting results posted to Ultrasignup. I’ll make sure everyone knows when they are up.
