Update

A mostly singletrack 10.5-mile course used for the Mill Stone 50K and other races put on by the Rock Hill Striders.

Craig Marshall

Overview

The Mill Stone 50K consists of three 10.5-mile loops at the scenic ASC Greenway in Fort Mill, SC. Don't let the name of the venue fool you. This is not a greenway like many cities and towns are developing, with paved or very groomed paths. The course in this private green space in the suburban Charlotte area consists of mostly singletrack, technical trail, with some gravel road and dirt trail. There will be at least two creek crossings, with the possibility of more depending on the weather. It will also most likely be muddy. You should have some trail running experience before taking on this race, but this would be a great first time 50K race.
Features: Lake — River/Creek
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know

The three loops make this course mentally difficult. Anyone with basic marathon training can do two loops; it is starting out on the third loop that is tough. However, if you leave the aid station for the last loop, historically, you have an almost 100% chance of finishing.

Description

This course starts out on a gravel road to get some spacing, but quickly goes through a creek and transitions to the trails. It is singletrack from there until the aid station at 3.5 miles, which is on an old road bridge that is pavement, but only for about 100 feet. After a another singletrack loop, the course comes back to the same aid station at 7 miles. From there, it is singletrack trail along the creek, and then heads around Lake Haigler. The finish is up a gravel road from the lake to the finish at mile 10.5.
