Back to our roots!
The Eastern Divide Ultra is a scenic 50K trail race through the highlands of southwest VA. The point-to-point course will pass beneath waterfalls, meander through old growth Hemlocks and glide by waist high ferns. While we may not have the grand heights of the West, the Mountain Lake area has an average elevation of 4000', which provides for cooler temperatures and a diverse ecosystem.
After a brief hiatus, we are back to finishing at Mountain Lake. Even though we have a change of date/season for this year's event, we are excited to get back to our original course!
EDU is cupless.
In an effort to be more sustainable and be friendly towards the environment, the Eastern Divide Ultra is now a cupless race. All runners will need to carry their own reusable cup throughout the race to use at aid stations.
There are no refunds for this event. We do offer deferrals to one of our other events-High Bridge 50k and Old Glory trail races- or this event next year. Please contact us by Nov 9th to defer. Deferrals will not be accepted after.
Local time: 9:58 PM
