50K & 10 Miler- Saturday October 6, 2018. The premier 50K trail race in the Southeast, the Rock/Creek StumpJump 50K presented by The North Face, takes place on lollipop 90% single-track course atop Signal Mountain and Walden Ridge. With gorgeous, jaw-dropping views of the Tennessee River Gorge, and lush coves of cascading streams, hemlock, and rhododendron, these sandstone-strewn trails offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the Cumberland Plateau region. This race is in its 17th running and has stood the test of time with locals and runners from across the world.
This is a perfect course for someone doing their first or 500th ultra.
3 things we guarantee.
2. Well aided/ marked course
3. Fun with a great local trail running community
This race sells out every year for a reason SO sign up right now
The 50k race is a lollipop with 95% single track and about 4,500 ft of gain and the same loss. It has a great mix of technical, flat, rolling hills and climbing.
The 10 miler is a loop that is 95% single track as well. It is technical in parts and rolling hills with no more than 1500 ft of gain. JOIN US!
