COURSE DESCRIPTION

The route starts at the base of the Ober Gatlinburg ski area and descends down and around to the heart of downtown Gatlinburg. There are some ups and downs, but the race begins at 2,660ft and finishes at 1,330ft. There will be two fully stocked aid stations (Mile 4 & 8) along the route. The aid stations will have basic first aid supplies, hydration, fruit, and Hammer Nutrition products. Most of the route will be open to traffic so we suggest wearing bright colors and maybe leaving the earphones at home. The race will finish at Gatlinburg Brewing where runners can grab a free beer. We will have a shuttle vehicle leaving the brewery back to the start every 30 minutes. We will also have a shower at a nearby hotel for anyone needing a place to shower after the race.

RUN FOR A CAUSE!

A portion of each registration from each racer and an overall donation from Mountain Trail Series will be given to the CURE JM Foundation. Juvenile Myositis (JM), including Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) and Juvenile Polymyositis (JPM), are a group of rare and life-threatening autoimmune diseases, in which the body’s immune system attacks its own cells and tissues. Weak muscles and skin rash are the primary symptoms of JDM, while muscle weakness without a rash is the primary symptom of JPM. We feel this foundation is doing critical work to help children who are dealing with this devastating illness. You can help support the cause by donating to the CURE JM Foundation. All donations go directly to the foundation.

Thank you for your support.
