Overview

Features: River/Creek — Spring — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: No Dogs

Need to Know

Major creek crossing at mile 5.7 across Rock Creek. In years with high water, we will use rafts to ford the creek.

Runner Notes

One mile section of gravel road on Wilson Ridge Road.

Description

The course shares approximately six miles with the Yamacraw 50K course. The 20K starts out quickly as runners race downhill towards the Big South Fork Cumberland River as it crisscrosses over Lick Creek multiple times. Along the way, runners will be treated to magnificent singletrack trails and scenic landmarks that include stunning rock overhangs and waterfalls.

After crossing Rock Creek, runners will split off the 50K course. The second half of the course offers two climbs but is fast and very runnable. The race ends with an iconic crossing over the river on a 100-foot high pedestrian bridge at Blue Heron that leads runners straight to the finish.

History & Background

Yamacraw Trail Races began in 2015. The 20K distance was added in 2016.
