I really apologize for the number of errors I've had to correct.
Here's the dates of the Fab 5 Fifties races for 2009:

April 25 Chippewa Moraine 50K
May 9 Ice Age Trail 50K and 50 mile

September 11 Superior Sawtooth 100 mile (50 mile split)
September 12 Superior Trail 50 mile
October 11 Glacial Trail 50 Mile
October 17 (tentative)Wild Duluth 50K
I haven't decided whether or not the Wild Duluth 100K will count.
Other ultras in the area of note:

June 20 Kekekabic Invitational Trail Run. I just decided this last night. It will be limited to 8 entrants and the quality of the race will depend entirely upon the bribes I get from people wanting an invitation.
