Course Description

UPDATE - For each participant the 50k now requires a review from the HardWin board for approval. The past couple of years runners who underestimate the course have got upset about being pulled or threaten us with action due to it's dangers. This 50k is for experienced trail runners only. Runners who wish to apply can signup up and a hold will be put on their order until we approve. Each applicant will be reviewed as soon as possible.

Course Description
WARNING - The Music City Trail Ultra is a hard course especially for the 50k. We are not saying this to impress you, read some of the reviews from last years runners on our site under the "News" link. If you're willing to take this challenge and still be humble, we welcome you. Also we request that all 50k runners be capable of finishing in 9 hours.
The course will start at our family farm in Pegram, TN that connects to the Cheatham Wildlife Games Reserve. This park offers 20,000 acres of beautiful steep trails and stunning ridge-line views. The course has a good mixture of rugged jeep trails and single track trails through technical terrain.* 50k - Half the run on trail and the other on jeep or gravel roads. This percentage might change as we will be adding new trail to the course this year
* 25k - 65% trail and and the rest on jeep and gravel roads
* 12k - 75% trail and the rest on jeep and gravel roads
