Overview

The Moonbow 10K is a looped trail race that begins at the Moonbow trailhead near the Visitors Center in Cumberland Falls State Park. The people of this area were hearty folk and this course will show you how they got that way. With roughly 95% of the course off-road (including a segment of the Sheltowee Trace Trail - Kentucky's long-trail), runners will traverse miles of rugged, winding, and at times grueling singletrack trail.

Description

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.

*Moonbow 10K is a very technical and challenging course and is highly recommended to have some experience before entering.
