50K RUNNERS
This race is a US SKYRunning Ultra Race and a UTMB Qualifier for 3 points on the new scale.

All 50k runners should be aware this is a mountain ultra and that there will be inherited risks involved in running this trail race. There will be portions of the course that will be off trail, up/down screen fields and have cliffs on either side. All runners should prepare to be able to carry enough water to hold them 6-7 miles at at which could be 2-3 hours if walking/hiking. Also be aware that if you drop in this race you will need to do so at an aid station. You will also understand that you will not be taken in from the course as we will have to come out and get you. If you are hurt on the course and cannot continue we will use the Park Search and Rescue to insure your safety in that case. Final map will be available after 3.1

KING/QUEEN OF THE MOUNTAIN
The recommended routes are being finalized for distance will be about 6-6.5 miles which will start at the mundys gap aid stations and head to the peak of the north franklin. We will use off trail/scree fields for some of the route and there are inherited risks involved in that. We may also have multiple routes as this is meant to have you see how you can get to the top the fastest and back down. Maps of various routes will be available on 3/1.

The start/finish will be at the pavilion area circle inside of the Franklin Mountains State Park.
