This is the course for the second training run for the No Business 100. Most of this training run will be along the NB100 course. We will be starting at the Peters Mountain Trailhead and following the NB100 course until we reach Charit Creek Lodge. We will then come back along Fork Ridge Road and eventually head back to Picket State Park.

Need to Know

This route finishes at the Sawmill Trailhead. We plan to continue after the trailhead back to Pickett State Park using Divide Road and Watson Branch Road.


The training run will start at Peters Mountain on the Sheltowee Trace Trail heading south towards Pickett State Park. At around mile 5, we will reach the Great Meadow Campground that also will be an aid station on the actual race course. Water and restrooms are available at the campground, but you'll need to ford the creek to get to them.

From Great Meadow, we continue south towards Pickett, crossing Rock Creek twice on the John Muir Trail. Leaving the John Muir Trail, we will take Tunnel Trail up to Hidden Passage to the Powerline Cut aid station. From Powerline, runners go out on Thompson's Overlook Road to the overlook then continue on Hidden Passage until reaching Hwy 154. From Hwy 154, we take Bluff Trail and Lake Trail back into Pickett State Park over the suspension bridge.

Next, we will do a loop in Pickett, taking us by Hazard Cave and Natural Bridge eventually leaving Pickett crossing Hwy 154 again to Watson Branch Road and Divide Rd towards Middle Creek Trailhead. From Middle Creek, we will be heading to Charit Creek Lodge via Slave Falls Trail and Twin Arches. Once reaching Charit Creek Lodge, we will come back using Fork Ridge Road, Divide Rd, and Watson Rd crossing Hwy 154 one last time into Pickett State Park.
