7:30 AM to 4:30 PM
This event has already occurred.
Sweetwater Creek State Park offers winding, moderately difficult trails with creek crossings in and around the park, following the lovely rapids of Sweetwater Creek, and venturing past Civil War-era textile mill ruins. No wheels of any kind nor pets allowed on the race course.
This 50k crosses Sweetwater Creek twice - you WILL get wet. (but that's the extra fun part!)
The race will be open for 9 hours allowing for plenty of time for course completion. An intermediate cutoff of 4.5 hours at mile 17 will be enforced for runner safety.
Awards will go to top three (3) Women and Men overall, and first place (1) Masters winner.
All proceeds benefit The Friends of Sweetwater Creek State Park.
