Course Description

Course Description
WARNING - The Music City Trail Ultra is a hard course especially for the 50k. We are not saying this to impress you, read some of the reviews from last years runners on our site under the "News" link. If you're willing to take this challenge and still be humble, we welcome you. Also we request that all 50k runners be capable of finishing in 9 hours.
The course will start at our family farm in Pegram, TN that connects to the Cheatham Wildlife Games Reserve. This park offers 20,000 acres of beautiful steep trails and stunning ridge-line views. The course has a good mixture of rugged jeep trails and single track trails through technical terrain.* 50k - Half the run on trail and the other on jeep or gravel roads. This percentage might change as we will be adding new trail to the course this year
* 25k - 65% trail and and the rest on jeep and gravel roads
* 12k - 75% trail and the rest on jeep and gravel roads

Aid StationsThere will be an aid station roughly every 5~6 miles on this course. Aid stations will include Gatorade, water, and snacks.

Cut-off Times Per Aid StationsThis is a hard cut-off time, and all runners arriving after the given times will be asked to drop. Please be respectful of race officials if you are asked to drop - no discussion. You will be provided with transportation back to the start/finish.
10 mile Aid Station cut-off time is 3 hours 20 minutes
20 mile Aid Station cut-off time is 6.5 hours
All runners must complete the race in 9 hours


What is Rucking - Rucking, or walking with a weighted pack on your back. The activity gets its name from “rucksacks,” which is military-speak for “backpack.” “Rucking” is marching or walking while wearing your rucksack (which is always loaded down with gear).

RUCK RULES - The weight standard is determined by body weight:
Over 150# - 30# dry
Under 150# - 20# dry
You may use anything you wish (steel plate, bricks, sandbags, etc) to comprise your dry weight but all food and water must be removed before weigh-in.
