Rim Runner showcases Franklin State Forest’s West Rim and West Side trails, a big trail loop that runs miles along the rim overlooking the coves on either side. This race is happening early in the Spring so we’re able to see through the trees and over the rim and also so the creeks and waterfalls can be flowing at their best. The 6am race start time is intentional so you get over to the East side of the course for the sunrise and many people (in the 50 and 100 mile ultramarathon distances) will hopefully be on the West side for the sunset.
The course is very runnable. Terrain is typical for the area: roots, rocks, dirt…nothing too crazy. A few nice creeks, small bridges and even a waterfall/swimming hole right off the course.

25 milers run on Sunday so that we take up less of the parking area. While not required by the Forest, we don’t want to be jerks to the locals.
