Table Rock Ultras

7081 NC Highway 181

Morganton, NC 50K, 30K

Registration closes: Wed, Sep 18 @ 11:59PM ET


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. The races include a 50k and a 30k. 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. This race is permitted through the US Forest Service.

If the race needs to be canceled for any reason (unforeseen acts of nature or state COVID closures), the race will be run virtually "Tanawha style" (aka on the actual course, not anywhere). Please plan your calendar accordingly. No refunds, transfers, or deferrals will be given in the case of the race moving to a virtual format.
