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! After each 10 mile loop, you will pass through the main aid station/Start/Finish. There are some technical sections, but it is mostly runnable 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 evening, normal aid station fare, and of course volunteer specialties being served until the last finisher comes through. There is a 12 hour cut-off for this event. All runners must be on loop 3 by 4pm for the 50k.
Local time: 4:16 PM
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 or 50K.
Awards will be given to top 3 Female and Male Finishers in each event.
Pacers are not allowed.
