Upchuck Lottery September 7th:
70 total entries selected (that is the max # for the bus). We can preview the applicants and omit any applicants that don't meet the prerequisite (must complete 50K within the previous year under 7.5 hours)
First lottery category " Upchuck Troupers" runner who has done 2 or more Upchucks. We draw 35 spots (assuming there are 35 or more applicants). Any leftover spaces will go to the second category.
Second category "Upchuck Neophyte" runner who has not experienced the Upchuck or has one Upchuck finish. We draw the remaining spots to total 70.
The results will be posted on Ultra Signup on Sept 7th.
Must have completed a 50K within the last 12 months, in a time of 7:30:00 or less.
Wild Trails and Rock/Creek present the UPCHUCK 50K. The event consists of a point-to-point trail that runs entirely on the technically-challenging single track of the Cumberland Trail.
This course has huge climbs and huge descents into Soddy Creek, Possum Creek and Rock Creek. It will, without a doubt, go down in the race log as one of the best 50k courses you will ever do. Please do not attempt this run as your first 50K. This is a serious endeavor and will quite possibly be your slowest 50k to date.
Local time: 2:57 PM
Proceeds benefit Wild Trails, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the use, expansion and protection of trails in greater Chattanooga.
