The Cloudsplitter takes place on a little known mountain deep in the heart of central Appalachian coal country, where the Pine Mountain Trail follows a geological fault line along the Kentucky-Virginia border high above the raging Russell Fork River. This remote course winds along rough and rocky pioneer roads, traverses dense rhododendron thickets, crosses vast rock outcroppings, meanders along beautiful single track trails dotted with enormous sandstone boulders and rock shelters, pioneer homesteads, and offers spectacular views of Kentucky and Virginia from rugged cliff lines. Only one road crosses the mountain along the entire length of the race course, and at the finish line runners are treated to a hog roast with soup beans, ham and cornbread.
