Trail shared by Brandon Thrower

The shorter, but still extremely gorgeous, version of Table Rock Ultras 50k/30k.

Features Birding · Fall Colors · River/Creek · Spring · Swimming · Views · Waterfall · Wildflowers · Wildlife

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. This is the shorter distance race of the two Table Rock Ultras distances of 30k. You don't reach the summit of Table Rock, but you get an incredible creek side trail with countless waterfalls on you way up the mountain.

Description

What better way to spend a day in autumn than running through the beautiful Pisgah National? 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.)

History & Background

This race is going on its 8th year and helps support maintenance of the Mountains to Sea Trail.
