This is currently South Carolina's only 100 Mile Ultra Marathon race which will take place on April 12, 2014 at 7:00 AM. The course will run through beautiful Croft State Park in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Why "Blind Pig"?

During the 1940s America's freedom was in jeopardy. Hitler's Army and the Japanese Navy were wreaking havoc across the world and President Roosevelt began massing troops. One of the training bases was Camp Croft, which is now Croft State Park. This center turned out many brave Americans who defended our Country, many who gave their life for it. "Blind Pig" refers to one of the many nicknames used for heavy mortars that were used in World War I. You can read more history here.

There are no "Easy 100 Milers", but we've designed this race from the ground up with 1st timers in mind. Runners will complete a 9 Mile loop eleven times along with a 1 mile out-n-back at the beginning of the race

In addition, you will pass heated bathrooms, showers, and have access to your crew setup in a very comfortable campground every loop. There will also be a 2nd manned aid station at approximately 5 miles into the loop before you return back to the main aid station / campground.

Event Start Location
Croft State Park, Spartanburg, SC

Course Description
The course is mostly single track trail with about one half mile of soft dirt road. There are a few hills and some roots & rocks. No major climbs or downhill sections and your feet won't get wet unless it rains. The total elevation for the entire race is about 6,500 Feet which is ideal for a 1st time 100 mile race or a PR (Personal Record) opportunity.
