Overview

Roots and rocks, hills and creeks, views and memories... We offer them all and more at Table Rock Ultras. Your goal is, the finish line, but lying between you and that goal is a lot of climbing, creek crossing, rock-hopping, gel-taking, and limit-pushing. The panoramic view from the summit of Table Rock is a perfect reward for all your hard work, until you realize you aren't done...

Need to Know

Registration usually opens in April.

Description

What better way to spend a day in autumn than running through the beautiful Pisgah National and up to the summit of Table Rock Mountain? It's certainly more rewarding than anything you'll find with a couch and a remote. Our start/finish host is the family-friendly Steele Creek Park and Campground, which makes for an awesome base camp. Proceeds benefit the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, a 1,000+ mile trail that connects western and eastern North Carolina, and scenic places in between (including part of both courses.) In 2014, we raised $3000 for the MST. In 2015, we more than doubled that amount to $7,000. Help us make 2017 even better!
