The McNaughton Park Trail Runs, over distances of 50, 100 and 150 miles (240 km), is an annual ultramarathon running event held in Pekin, Illinois each spring on a rugged, ten-mile (16 km) loop course. All three races are run concurrently. The 100-mile (160 km) ultra is the only one held in Illinois. The 150-mile (240 km) ultra, first held in 2007, is the only 150-mile (240 km) race in the United States.

The loop course is primarily a single lane footpath, through natural countryside including forests and meadows. Each ten-mile (16 km) loop provides approximately 1,600 feet (490 m) of elevation gain.

A thirty mile run, part of the event through 2006, was replaced by a 150-mile (240 km) option beginning in 2007.
