Midfall SpeedBall is an online only marathon hosted by MidWest SpeedFest on November 15-17th. We will be fundraising for St.Jude's Children's Hospitals.

The times for running will be finalized in later.

Submissions are now open and will remain open until October 27th, 2019 11:59pm CT. The schedule will be revealed and released for the public on November 2nd, 2019 at the latest.

To participate in the marathon you must join our Discord server. A link can be found here: https:/​/​discord.​gg/​pxdb9PQ

Any other questions can be asked here or in our Discord server.

Thanks all for your participation!

Edit: I edited the post to reflect the changes that this will be an online only marathon (most likely, depends on what staff does).

When we made the name for MidFall back in 2017, we could really only think of SpeedBall. Probably something better out there, but the goofy names stick to us and help us stand out.

Bad news everyone, I'm going to have to cancel the onsite portion of this marathon. Unexpected family issues (relating to my grandmother) have arisen and I thought there were going to be taken care of the weekend before (the 9th and 10th) but it doesn’t look like that will be happening. I will unfortunately be busy both weekends (9th and 10th as well as 16th and 17th).

The good news is only two folks have stated they were going to be onsite runners besides myself, so it will be very easy for the MWSF staff to transition this into and online only marathon. I'll let the rest of MWSF staff handle this and step down myself.

Thanks for understanding everyone and sorry for the inconvenience.
