Expect a little of everything on this challenging and rewarding course. Please note that this course is not open for running except during the race. The 2016 race date is August 20th!

Experience the beauty and history of one of Kentuckys prettiest properties at the Hot Hot Hundred. Held on a private tree farm just north of Morehead, KY the Hot Hot Hundred is a 10k loop course. Runners have the option of a single 10k lap or a 2- to 5-person team 100k relay.
Battle the intense heat and your urge to give up as you encounter steep off-trail ascents, plummeting descents, and a wide variety of plant and animal wildlife. Youll find great views from the ridgeline above and the valley below. Pass by old homestead sites and even grab some wild blackberries and blueberries that grow right along the course!
