The Venue

A two-day mountain stage race – War at Windrock is an epic adventure of trail running that recreational athletes, elite runners, and everyone in between will not want to miss.

Nestled in Windrock Park, just north of Oak Ridge, TN, runners will conquer a wild journey through single track trails of steep climbs, rugged terrain, and breathtaking mountain views (if you still have any breath left). Best of all, the race is routed directly through the wind farm- strictly off limits to the general public under normal circumstances- as Dirty Bird Events has gained exclusive access to this private area.

The race weekend will offer athletes the opportunity to enjoy Windrock Mountain in three ways: Move Fast, Get High, and Go Long. It’s an ultra distance in three stages, certain to push trail runners of all levels to the limit. Whether competing for the “Trailfecta” (recommended) or battling in just one or two races, we invite all participants to fight hard, have fun, and enjoy the War at Windrock.

Race Overview

The Battles:
Move Fast: 4.5 Mile Trail Run @ 9:00am on Saturday, April 12th.
This rolling course will allow competitors to showcase their inner speed demon while offering some technical single track running.

Get High: “10K” Uphill Climb @ 2:30pm on Saturday, April 12th.
The 72,000 acre park is known for its off-road recreational vehicle usage, but we are leaving the vehicles behind and tackling the elevation on foot. This is the toughest and longest “10k” you will ever run!

Go Long: 34K Trail Run @ 8:00am on Sunday, April 13th.
Experience the raw power and magnificent beauty first hand, as 18 wind turbines await the participants as they summit Buffalo Mountain
