50K, 50 Mile, 50 Mile Relay
Distances: 50K (31 miles), 50 mile individual and relay Trail Marathon!
The majority of the 50k event will be run on the hiking/bridal trails of the Sauratown Trail system with a small section inside Pilot Mountain and the final section running through Hanging Rock State Park. Total course elevation gain is 3400ft.The 50 miler will utilize trails within Pilot Mountain State Park, the Sauratown Trail system, and Hanging Rock State Park. The total elevation gain on this course is 5600ft.Note: some stream crossings may be necessary on the both distance depending on rain levels in the weeks leading up the event. Most crossings can be done without getting to wet. On race day so far no trail crossings have been over ankle deep.Until further notice sections 2 and 3 of the Sauratown Trail System will be closed to the public, therefore the course will have to proceed along a paved road for 2.5 miles before entering Hanging Rock. We will continue to work with the Sauratown Trail Association to open those sections in the future. Our goal as always is to have as much of the course trail as possible. The STA is fully on private land, because of that, some sections may need to be rerouted last minute.
