The Bull Mountain Epic offers something for everyone! The Jake and Bull Mountain Trail system is composed of 3 DIFFERENT loops and each loop is approximately 10 miles long. Half Marathoners will run one loop up and over Bull Mountain plus a little double track to complete the distance. 50K runners will complete each of the loops (with 5000' of total elevation gain) once and 100K runners will run each loop (with 10000' of elevation gain) twice! After each 10 mile loop, you will pass through the main aid station/Start/Finish. There are some technical sections, but it is mostly run-nable single track, making this a tough and challenging North Georgia trail race. Waterfalls, multiple stream crossings, rocky climbs and blazing fast descents are just a few of the trail amenities. We will have 3 aid stations stocked with veggie friendly everything: soups, fruits, some hot foods cooking in the night, normal aid station fare, and of course volunteer specialties being served until the last finisher comes through.
Local time: 6:15 AM
The course is well marked with ample signage at turns and reflective everything for those racing into the night. This is going to be an awesome event for veterans as well as those wanting run their first trail 1/2 marathon, 50K or 100K.
Awards will be given to top 3 Female and Male Finishers in each event.
Pacers are allowed for the final two laps for 100k runners. Pacers are only allowed to get on and off the trail with runners at the main aid station at Bull Mountain Parking Lot.
Pacers are not allowed for the 50k and 1/2 marathon.
