There is a reason race spectators chant “You Survived the Savage Gulf Marathon!” once you cross the finish line. This marathon is known to be one of the toughest marathons in the Southeast. The marathon features two steep descents and climbs into and out of the Savage Gulf on Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau. Along the route you will encounter challenging terrain with a variety of beautiful scenery including large stone formations, waterfalls, historic sites, wildflowers and old growth forest. To qualify to participate in this race you must have completed a marathon or longer race, this isn’t your average trail run with finishing times ranging between 4.5 hours to 8 hours. You are guaranteed to challenge yourself with this very grueling and scenic marathon.
