Mulberry Meltdown

Come test your mettle on a well-maintained 1.02 mile course of loopy fun on Mulberry Gap's on-site trails. Sounds easy, right? Maybe the first few times…

You’ll run by mountain brooks and across a koi pond. You’ll run through stands of hemlocks and past the smiling faces of volunteers and supporters. You’ll run past a nice, warm “barn” (hint: it’s not really a barn) serving nice, warm food. You’ll run past your tent or cabin (which you should book RIGHT NOW) to access personal aid and sleep without leaving the course, and you’ll run through a MTB pump track and skills track (no, you don’t have to run the tricks...but maybe that’d be fun the first few times…please show us pictures).

You’ll also accumulate 230ft of elevation gain per loop.


I'm pretty sure no one's going to hit 100 miles. (No one has done it yet.) But if you do, you'll hit more gain than the famous Western States Endurance Run over the same distance. Challenge accepted, anyone?

The course is 90% dirt/trail. There will be small segments of gravel plus the paved area where the main buildings are at the Start/Finish. There will also be a couple of short wooden bridges so you don’t get your tootsies wet as you cross the aforementioned brooks and koi pond. :)
