The goal of the Ultra Race of Champions is to bring together runners of all abilities alongside the best long distance runners in the World, celebrating the inclusive nature of the sport. UROC gives back to the sport by perpetuating the sense of community which makes ultra running so unique and providing one of the most scenic and memorable courses in the USA.
The day includes the UROC 100K, 50K and 25K. The course is a stunning Blue Ridge Mountains gem, starting and finishing at breathtaking 12 Ridges Vineyard with amazing 360 degrees views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. The course is a mix of single track trails and jeep roads, with short sections on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
