The race will take place at Oak Mountain State Park and all races will start and end at the Redbud Pavilion located on Tranquility Road, adjacent to the BMX Track. The races will start at 6:30 AM. (Sunrise on the 19th is 6:24 a.m. and sunset is 4:42 p.m.)

Blood Rock 50 Mile

We are thrilled to announce the addition of a 50 mile race, the Blood Rock 50, as part of the final race of the 2016 Mountain High Outfitters Southeastern Trail Series. The race will take place at Oak Mountain State Park, starting and ending at the Redbud Pavilion located on Tranquility Road, adjacent to the BMX Track on November 19th. The race will start at 6:30 AM. (Sunrise on the 19th is 6:24 a.m. and sunset is 4:42 p.m.) The course will be a single 50 Mile Loop. Almost 14 miles of the 50 will be on very difficult backcountry trails with some of the steepest climbs in the southeast. Don't try this race in road running shoes! At present we plan to have a 15 Hour Cutoff. This is subject to change.

Most Aid stations distances range from 3 to over 7 miles apart. The distance from Aid Station #1 to Aid Station #2, however, is almost 10 Miles. This will be a VERY long 10 miles so plan on carrying much more water than you would expect to use.

Blood Rock 50K

Blood Rock 50K Trail Race is part of the final race in the 2016 Mountain High Outfitters Southeastern Trail Series. The race will take place at Oak Mountain State Park, starting and ending at the Redbud Pavilion located on Tranquility Road, adjacent to the BMX Track. The race will start at 6:30 AM. (Sunrise on the 19th is 6:24 a.m. and sunset is 4:42 p.m.) The 50K course will be a single loop course circling most of the park. The first 25 miles of the race will follow the same course as the 50 Mile Race. At the Marina Aid Station #4, 50K runners will return to the Finish. Aid Stations will range between 3 miles and 6 miles with one exception. The distance between AS 1 and AS 2 will be almost 10 miles. This will be the most difficult 10 miles of the race and will take much longer to run than you will expect. Carry plenty of water!

Blood Rock 25K

The Blood Rock 25K will start at the Redbud Pavilion at 6:30 AM along with the 50K and 50 Mile. 25K runners will follow the same route as the 50's and will end when runners arrive back at the Redbud Pavilion.
