About The Race

The Y’allhalla Ultras has it all: waterfalls, boulder scrambles, riverbanks, bridges, and lakeside trails are just some of the features that make your journey to Y’allhalla an unforgettable Bluegrass experience.

The race is an out-and-back route along the Sheltowee Trace beginning and ending at Kentucky’s Sheltowee Camp - an incredible venue complete with campsites, cabins, bunkhouse, and a full bathhouse with showers!

Every year the race changes directions!

  • In even-numbered years the race runs north-south through Laurel County, Kentucky past the natural arches of The Narrows, through Sinking Creek, and over the sandstone trails to the 49er.

  • In odd-numbered years, the race runs south-north through Whitley County over the Laurel Lake Spillway, along the banks of the Cumberland River, and over the famous Cumberland Falls.


The 2024 course is an epic north-south out and back route along Kentucky's Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail through the thick, lush Daniel Boone National Forest.

You'll climb in and out of deep valleys, cross numerous flowing creeks, and pass through the beautiful Cane Creek and Van Hook Falls!
