This year, 600 participants will be treated to some of the most beautiful trails in the southeast. All three courses offer scenic landmarks throughout the race that include gorge overlooks, stunning rock overhangs, natural arches, waterfalls, and the 50K and 20K end with an iconic finish into Blue Heron Mining Community across a 100 foot high pedestrian bridge. The Yamacraw courses were designed to attract a diverse demographic of active outdoor enthusiasts. From the seasoned ultrarunner to the beginner trail runner, Yamacraw offers something for everyone.
