We canít believe there isnít a trail ultra here already! Kingís Mountain State Park is an amazing venue for an all trail, well supported, challenging 50K! For those who have done our Pilot Mountain to Hanging Rock 50 miler and 50K, you know this will be a great event! This will also be a tune up for our 50K, and 100K Borderwars event that will use Kings Mountain State Park (SC), Kings Mountain National Park (SC), and Crowder Mountain State Park (NC) next spring!

While there are no crazy steep climbs like at Hanging Rock, there is a lot of elevation change throughout the course. The best part about this race is the isolation. These beautiful trails offer a lot of solitude and tranquility during the event.

We will have a course map, with elevation, and waterstops soon. Plan on tons of support, an awesome finishers shirt and medal, and an experience you will remember for a lifetime!

The course has a generous 10 hour time limit. This will allow people to average just over 3 mph and still finish!
