Come run the premier 50k trail race in the Southeast. Taking place on a beautiful dirt-packed trail with Tennessee mountain stone thrown in and with a 5000+ ft. elevation gain. This race is the 2014 RRCA National Ultra Championship and will likely sell out earlier than last year, which was mid Sept. Looking for a shorter race on the same beautiful trail? You're in luck! There will be an 11-mile course offered as well.

There will be a 5-1/2 hour cutoff time (1:30 PM) at the Mullens Cove Parking lot at mile 19.5. This is a hard cut off time and all runners arriving after 1:30 PM will be asked to drop. Please be respectful of race officials if you are asked to drop - no discussion. You will be provided with transportation back to the start/finish. 9 hour cutoff time at finish. This averages out to over 17 minutes per mile pace. This is not a hike so please be respectful and do not sign up for this event if you plan to walk most of the course.
The 50K is limited to 600 and the 11 Mile is set at 300.
Again for StumpJump this year is tent camping. The rather large soccer complex that sits about 200 yards from the Start/Finish is graciously allowing tent camping the night before the race. In addition, the high school booster club will have breakfast for all the campers starting at 5am. The $25 camping cost includes breakfast for one. Additional breakfast reservations can be purchased for $5. You can also purchase a camp spot at packet pick up on Friday. You will be given a tent tag when you arrive. You must display this tag on your tent. No alcohol in the park please. All proceeds go toward school improvements
This race is part of the Salomon Rock/Creek Trail Series. Race proceeds benefit Wild Trails, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the use, protection and expansion of nature trails in the greater Chattanooga area.
