The Moonbow 50K is a 3x looped trail race that begins at 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 single-track trail.

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 50K is a very technical and challenging course and is highly recommended to have some experience before entering.



There is a 11 hour cutoff time for the Moonbow 50K (All 50K participants must finish first full loop by 1:00pm to start second loop. All 50K participants must finish second full loop by 5:00pm to start third loop).

Prizes will be awarded to top 3 Male and Female in 50K distance

All registrations include race, race shirt, custom finishers award, post race lunch, post race beverage, and some of the most beautiful views in Kentucky
