Overview

The No Business Hundred began in 2017. It is a 102 mile loop course that traverses through the heart of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area in Kentucky and Tennessee. The course will take runners on a journey through some of the most scenic & picturesque trails in the southeast. Each year, we reverse the direction of the course. In odd years we will run the course in the clockwise direction leaving from the Group Camp in Pickett CCC Memorial State Park in Jamestown, Tennessee.

Description

The No Business Hundred is a trail endurance race that begins and ends at the Group Camp in Pickett CCC Memorial State Park. The course is a single 102 mile loop that traverses through the heart of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area starting in Tennessee then crossing the state line into Kentucky and back on some of the oldest trails in the southeast. We reverse the direction of the course each year and award a special buckle for runners who complete the course in both directions.

Along the way participants will pass through towering sandstone arches & rockhouses, gaze upon spectacular overlooks & waterfalls, and visit abandoned farms and homesteads including the No Business settlement. This epic journey is an adventure through some of the most scenic and wild areas in the region.

With just over 14,500 feet of elevation gain, the No Business Hundred may appear at first glance to be a walk in the park but make no mistake, the technical terrain and remote setting present a challenge that make it a unique hundred mile course.
