The Hellbender 100 begins at the picturesque Camp Grier in Old Fort, NC. From there, the route will take you over some of the highest mountains on the east coast and deep into the valleys below, passing by gorgeous vistas, thundering creeks, and majestic forest. The start and finish of the course is at 1,500 ft and the high point of the course is 6,500 ft in the beautiful Black Mountains! The climbs are huge with five climbs and descents of 3,000 ft or more. All together the course has 25,000+ ft of elevation gain and 25,000+ ft of descent. The terrain is classic east coast, which is a mix of soft dirt and extremely technical rocks and roots. The course consist of 62 miles of trail, 28 miles of gravel, and 10 miles of pavement. Most of the gravel is on the back end of the course when you’ll be running through the dark. A classic mountain course in the heart of Appalachia!
