Ever wondered what trail running is like? The Piedmont 8 Hour is a great intro to Ultras and trail running. The 2.85 mile loop features approx 60 feet of elevation change each loop. The trail meanders through open meadows and forest, presenting an ever changing view. Running the last weekend of October also means that you will see spectacular leave coloring.
Runners will have access to food and aid every time they pass the start line. Awards will be given to the top three finishers for males and females. Every runners logging either a half marathon or 50k will also receive a prize.
Every runner who signs up by 10/10/20 is guaranteed a shirt. We know after the Corona Virus everyone wants to run so we are keeping the price low. Registration starts at $40! Come out and hit the trails with us!
We are changing the course this year to give everyone some new trails to run. Participants will start at Trailhead parking as in years past. They will head out towards Coyote Run. Once on Coyote Run they will loop towards Pine Trail and then pick up Big Cabin before ending up back at the start. It is approximately 2.65 miles per each loop with minimal elevation change.
