Table Rock Ultras

7081 NC Highway 181

Morganton NC 50K, 50 Miler

This Event Took Place Sat. Oct 18, 2014


Note: To avoid additional permitting procedures, we are restricting entry into both races to participants ages 18 and over...

Roots and rocks; hills and creeks; views and memories... We offer them all and more at Table Rock Ultras. Your goal is, the finish line, but lying between you and that goal is a lot of climbing, creek crossing, rock-hopping, gel-taking, and limit-pushing. For 2016, there is no 50-miler. The races include a 50k and a 30k for those who aren't quite ready for an ultra, but still want an enjoyable run through the woods. The 50K will take you to the summit of Table Rock Mountain and back with passing through several creek crossings, technical stretches, huge views, and many ups and downs along the way. The 30K follows the same outbound course as the 50K but turns around and retraces its steps after the second aid station. Please visit our website for complete details on the course.
