TROUBLESOME HOLLOW
Why Troublesome Hollow? I doubt that anyone who grew up in the heart of Appalachia doesn't have fond memories of a Troublesome Hollow or Troublesome Creek. I wanted this race name to resonate with folks who come and run the race from outside Appalachia. So they to can have fond memories of the heart of Appalachia which is Southwest Virginia! See you Soon !!

Course
COURSE DETAILS & TRAINING
https://ultrapacer.com/course/troublesome-hollow-50k

The course is flat and fast along the river and over swinging bridges and trestles ! Just one small hill up to the Firetower !! And then a run back down to the finish !

If you dont like swinging trestles - you may use the hard bridges

Thank you for believing in small town events and your continued support of Appalachia.
