Overview

The Yamacraw 10K trail race follows the Blue Heron Loop Trail at the Blue Heron Mining Community in Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area.
Features: Cave — River/Creek — Spring — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: No Dogs

Description

The course features gorge overlooks, river views with Class IV whitewater rapids, rock overhangs, waterfalls and sandstone bluffs. Several wooden step-ladders appear throughout the course that runners will have to traverse including the cave-like passage called “Crack-in-the-Rock”.

The course might be a lot shorter than its sister race but it’s no slouch. The Yamacraw 10K starts with a challenging uphill climb of close to 775 feet within the first 1.5 miles offering runners of all ages and experience both a challenging and enjoyably scenic race.
