5th Annual Yeti or Not 25k is a North Carolina State Permitted event that takes place in the beautiful DuPont State Forest. The race starts & finishes at Guion Farm. Rolling trails will take you along lakes, through creek crossings, and allow for scenic vistas of the surrounding mountains. A truly fun and gentle course that is not overly technical or filled with steep climbs. 14 of the 15.5 mile course will be on single track trails with the remaining 1.5 miles on forest service dirt roads. A very runnable course that is sure to leave you with lasting memories of the beauty of Western North Carolina trails!
***Course Subject to change due to trail closures***
