Tip Of The Day

Avoid Skipping Recovery

Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.

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.
