We are back for the second year, and all the "fun and games" are over! We are here to bring you the full version of what everyone ran in 2018. It will incorporate the entire trail system of Crowders Mountain. Both mountain peaks will be summit-ted. You get a nice beautiful view of the lake too. This race is more than a race, it is a celebration of one of the most iconic trail systems right here in the Charlotte area. To finish the 100 miler, if you reach 90 miles at the 30th hour we will let you continue on to the finish. For the 50 mile it will be a 30 hour cut off. For the 25 miler it will have a 30 hour cut off. The buckle and medals will also be extremely special for anyone who is able to finish.
