A beautiful course winding through hardwood coves, crystal mountain streams, and dramatic gorges on its way to the summit of the icon Table Rock Mtn, with massive views of the Linville Gorge. Elevation gain should be around 4,000′ for the 30K and 5,700′ for the 50K. The highest point on the 50k course is (fittingly) the summit of Table Rock Mountain, where 50K runners reach approximately 4000′ above sea level. For 30K runners, the second aid station is your high point. Expect a photographer or two out on the course on race day.
Please be prepared. This is a difficult course. There are water crossings, long, steep climbs, and much of the course is on technical trail, meaning one slightly wrong step can turn a good day into a DNF. We strongly encourage people to have some trail experience.

Total Vertical Change ~ 11,000 ft
