One of the premier 50k trail races in the southeast--The Rock/Creek StumpJump 50k presented by Salomon, takes place on a beautiful mostly single-track trail on Signal Mountain and Walden Ridge. With 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. There is approximately 5000+ ft. elevation gain. For 2015, we have reduced the number participants in order to provide a more intimate, resourceful, and "classic" experience!

There will be a 5-1/2 hour cutoff time (1:30 PM) at the Mullens Cove Parking lot at mile 19.5. This is a hard cut off time and all runners arriving after 1:30 PM will be asked to drop. Please be respectful of race officials if you are asked to drop - no discussion. You will be provided with transportation back to the start/finish. 9 hour cutoff time at finish. This averages out to over 17 minutes per mile pace. This is not a hike so please be respectful and do not sign up for this event if you plan to walk most of the course.
This race is limited to 300.
All race proceeds will be directed towards the Tennessee River Gorge Trust in conjunction with the Southeast Youth Corps for trail and/or trailhead maintenance in the Prentice Cooper State Forest.
