Morehead, Kentucky is not only one of the state's most popular official Trail Towns- we are making it a go-to spot for trail running with the Big Turtle 50 Miler!  The Big Turtle is a fun and challenging trail running event that runs along the northern section of the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail.  Why Big Turtle?  Well, back in the day the Shawnee gave Daniel Boone the nickname "Sheltowee" which means "Big Turtle."   The race is an out and back course that runs from beautiful downtown Morehead to the northern terminus of the Sheltowee Trace and back.  50K-ers and 10 Milers turn back sooner.
