The High Bridge Ultra is a simple and beautiful 50K. The course runs on the High Bridge Trail which is an old railroad bed turned gravel trail. This course is great for those looking to get into the ultramarathon scene to see what the 50k distance can feel like, without having to worry about too technical of a trail. It is also great for the experienced ultramarathoner who wants to stretch their legs and see just how fast they can run a 50k. Course record is 3:19:16.
30k runners will start in Farmville and finish in Pamplin with the 50k.
Runners will park at the old Depot in Pamplin, VA and be bused to the start of their race. From there runners will race back to the Pamplin end and the Finish! Fast course with fast runners! Runners must reach Aid Station 4 (~19 miles) by 6 hours.
The event is sanctioned by USA Track & Field.
Any runner registering after September 23rd, 2023 will not be able to order a 2023 event shirt. There are limited number of previous year shirts available at a discount price remaining.
There are no refunds.
HBU is cupless
In an effort to be more sustainable and friendly towards the environment, the High Bridge Ultra and 30k are both cupless races. All runners will need to carry their own reusable cup throughout the race to use at aid stations.
