Click to go to the web site for the Taterbug 30 Ultramarathon in Vevay, Indiana

The Taterbug 30 Ultramarathon will ben run through some of the most scenic areas of Southeastern Indana. Much of the course will follow historic Indian Creek, later extending to the top of Taterbug Hill - the highest point in Switzerland Count. The entire course will be paved, with some call section of gravel road. The majority of the course will be less-traveled county roads. Depending on rainfall, a creek crossing the course may result in wet shoes so be prepared.... and don't be a wimp.

The race will provide seasoned competitors with a challenging course yet a good distance for the first-time ultramarathoner. Organized teams of up to six members can run shorter lengths, each participating in five-mile legs.

Taterbug Fact Sheet
• Taterbug 30 is 1 of only 2 ultramarathons in the State of Indiana.
• Taterbug 30 is named for Switzerland County’s “Taterbug Hill”- the highest point in the county- that climbs to 909 feet above sea level.
• Rolling hills, wooded areas and creeks will greet you along the course route, with some of the most spectacular scenery in Southeast Indiana.
• Taterbug 30 will begin in Vevay, Indiana, dubbed Budget Travel Magazine’s #4 “America’s Coolest Small Town” in April 2009.
• Because of the length of course, Ultramarathons are ran during the cooler months as opposed to shorter distances in warmer temperatures.
• “Taterbug” is short for Potato Bug, which is how the location got its name. According to the locals, Taterbug was a nickname bestowed on a local farmer whose potato crop was overrun with the insect one season. Originally part of Fishing Worm Ridge, the name “Taterbug” eventually extended to the name of the hill as well as a church and school.
• Switzerland County is home to one of Indiana’s “Top 10 Festivals”. Held each August, the Swiss Wine Festival hosts nearly 25,000 people at Paul Ogle Riverfront Park in the town’s count seat of Vevay. The festival plays homage to the county’s history of being in the record books as the location of the “first successful commercial winery in America.”
