It's finally here: An ultra-distance event in Blacksburg, Virginia. Come experience the allure of Jefferson National Forest and Brush Mountain by way of the challenging 50K or the introductory 25K (15 miler).

Runners will enjoy beautiful single track trails, fully-stocked aid stations, and the best post-race atmosphere in SWVA as finishers shuffle across the road from Heritage Park to the finish festival at Rising Silo Brewery to indulge in their hard earned complimentary race beverage (beer, ginger beer, kombucha, or house made fizzy soda) while enjoying live music.

The 50K and 25K overlap for the first 11 miles with 50K runners continuing along Poverty Creek Trail to Rt 708 and traversing Gap Mountain via Poverty Creek-Trillium-Skullcap-Prickley Pear-Royale Trails. 50K runners will return to the Upper Lot aid station before retracing the first 9 miles of the course in reverse. The 50K will provide runners with the grueling challenge of over 4200' of vertical ascent.
