It’s BACK! We have revived one of our most popular races for 2020! The Hot Hot Hundred is one of the most unique and challenging races in Kentucky. Held on a private tree farm just north of Morehead, KY the Hot Hot Hundred is a 10k looped course.  Runners have the option of an individual 10k race, a solo 100K race, or a 2- to 5-person team 100K relay. Intense heat? Check. Steep ascents? Check. Great views? Check. Camping? Check. Partying and running at the same time? CHECK!

Our 100k Relay race is for teams of 2 to 5 runners.  Your choice!  All teams will run 10 consecutive laps of our 6.2 mile course.  One runner is allowed on the course for each lap.  NO DOUBLING UP WILL BE PERMITTED.  Read more on that in the Race Rules section below.

The Hot Hot Hundred 10k is a truly difficult, challenging, and rewarding 6.2 mile trail race.  Any veteran of the Hot Hot Hundred will attest to the challenge of this race. Test yourself, face the challenge, and go home knowing that you completed something that many people would not event attempt!

5 laps. 30+ miles. Over 7,000 feet of uphill elevation. And you have 16 hours to get it done. Whether you are looking for your first ultra (remember you have 16 HOURS!), want a different kind of looped ultra challenge, or need a really hard training race for that big fall ultramarathon this is the race for you!

The individual 100K race at the Hot Hot Hundred is designed for the heartiest and craziest ultrarunners out there.  That’s right.  You will have 62 miles to cover.  That is 10 laps of this incredibly challenging course.  And you will have only 16 hours to do it!  Why?  Because this is the hardest 6.2 miles in the state of Kentucky, and those who believe they can complete the Hot Hot Hundred 100K course in 16 hours will prove themselves to be unstoppable!
