“A beautiful looped course taking runners through the Cumberland River canyon with a start/finish at the iconic Falls.”— Dan Durick
Featured Race - Sep 29, 2019
Features Birding · Cave · Fall Colors · River/Creek · Spring · Swimming · Views · Waterfall · Wildflowers · Wildlife
Natural landmarks you'll encounter include stunning rock houses and overhangs, creek crossings and magnificent waterfalls. Most striking is the iconic finish just a short walk from the 68-foot high, 125-foot wide Cumberland Falls - home of the moonbow -- often referred to as 'The Niagara of the South'.Natural beauty doesn't come to you - you go to it. Come on out, retrace the steps of the hearty folk that once called this place home and redefine what you call flat terrain. The Moonbow 30K is a very technical and challenging course and is highly recommended to have some experience before entering.
There is a 7 hour cutoff time for the Moonbow 30K (All 30K runners must finish first full loop by 1pm to start second loop)
*Portions of the proceeds benefit the Kentucky State Parks and the National Forest Service.
