Tip Of The Day

Set a Date

No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.

Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.

Pilot Mountain to Hanging Rock Ultra 50 Mile and 50K

Have you had a chance to see the beauty of Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock State Park in the fall? This race is filled with wooded trails, stream crossings and gorgeous views, representing one of the most beautiful and difficult new races in the country.

Event details and schedule

  • Race Date: October 13th, 2018
  • Distances: 50K (31 miles), 50 mile individual and relay Trail Marathon!
  • The majority of the 50k event will be run on the hiking/bridal trails of the Sauratown Trail system with a small section inside Pilot Mountain and the final section running through Hanging Rock State Park. Total course elevation gain is 3400ft.
  • The 50 miler will utilize trails within Pilot Mountain State Park, the Sauratown Trail system, and Hanging Rock State Park. The total elevation gain on this course is 5600ft.
  • Note: some stream crossings may be necessary on the both distance depending on rain levels in the weeks leading up the event.  Most crossings can be done without getting to wet.  On race day so far no trail crossings have been over ankle deep.
  • Until further notice sections 2 and 3 of the Sauratown Trail System will be closed to the public, therefore the course will have to proceed along a paved road for 2.5 miles before entering Hanging Rock.  We will continue to work with the Sauratown Trail Association to open those sections in the future.  Our goal as always is to have as much of the course trail as possible.  The STA is fully on private land, because of that, some sections may need to be rerouted last minute.
