The Big Turtle 50 Miler is an out and back course that runs from beautiful downtown Morehead to the northern terminus of the Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail and back.  50K-ers and 10 Milers turn around sooner.  

This race will give you a little bit of everything:  rolling meadows, steep climbs and descents, rugged terrain, creek crossings, fast forest roads, and amazing spring views of the surrounding Appalachian foothills.  

50 Miler, 50K, and 10 Miler distances available!
