The event was created because I wanted to put on a fast ultra, and continue to grow the trail running community in Nashville. The event is an out and back. The Natchez provides 24ish miles of fast trails. The event is mainly on single track but has several road crossings over the Natchez. The Natchez is rich in beauty and history, so join us in pushing yourself and continuing a portion of the tradition of The Kaintucks.

Avg Slope: 4.4
Gain: 3816
Loss: 3634

Marathon Update

2017 Update - This year we will be busing the Marathoners to the end of the trail. This is why your cost is the same as the 45 milers. From there you will run the entire trail and then go back out for a couple of miles to get your total distance. This is pretty awesome as you get to experience the whole trail and then some!

45 Mile Qualification

To qualify for the Natchez you must have run an official 50k or longer race within 365 days of the event. If you have any questions then please email

There will be basic first aid at the event that can take care of minor injuries. We suggest that all runners carry a phone on them, as it is the best way to get to you. If you are injured and it is not an emergency please contact the race director with the contact information given before the race, and if it is an emergency dial 911.


Will there be water/aid stations at any point on the course? If so where will there be and what will they have? - Yes we have water stations about every 5 miles. I usually add candy, chocolate, salted sweet potatoes, and gels.

Where does the course start? I read about the drop off, which I am excited about, since that means we will see as much of the trail as possible.
We will all meet at this location:,+Franklin,+TN+37064/@35.8750882,-87.0351329,621m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x8880e1e164c63357:0x95d70f6d38df1f92!2sNatchez+Trace+Pkwy!3b1!8m2!3d33.7672477!4d-89.0186661!3m4!1s0x88637d62d5c7963d:0x50eda37f4eabc2c2!8m2!3d35.8750882!4d-87.0329442

Then take a bus to this location and run back to the original location. Once you get to the original location you will still need to run three miles. Which we will probably have you run 1.5 miles out then back:,+Williamsport,+TN+38487/@35.7217254,-87.2648632,622m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x8880e1e164c63357:0x95d70f6d38df1f92!2sNatchez+Trace+Pkwy!3b1!8m2!3d33.7672477!4d-89.0186661!3m4!1s0x88635cd80d51e6ef:0xbe3d1f3dc6af42c2!8m2!3d35.7218533!4d-87.2625052

Will there be any food/snacks/beer at the finish line or should I bring my cooler? We will have snacks, water, gatorade, and gels. The park does not allow alcohol unfortunately.

Can we leave jackets in the drop off van to send to the finish line? You will be at the finish line at the start of the race. From there you will take a bus to the starting point. So feel free to leave whatever you want!
