Leatherwood Ultra Run

Date:  April 23th, 2016


This is a unique race since the course is run entirely on private property.  Leatherwood Mountains has a restaurant and bar.  While you’re out running, families can go fishing or horseback riding.  50 mile runners will return to the start/finish area 3 times times along the course, making crewing very easy.
Distances:  50M, 50k, 10M

  • 50M and 50k follow the same course.  50 mile will then do a 10 mile loop twice to complete the distance.  Those running the 50 mile race will have the option to stop at the 50k point and still receive a finish time.  Hopefully most will choose to continue on to finish the whole 50 mile challenge.  50 mile course has an estimated 13,000ft of elevation gain.  50k course has an estimated 9,000ft of gain.
  • New 10 mile course for 2016.  New course still has an estimated 2000ft elevation gain.  First and last mile are a beautiful paved road through the meadow.  Course will follow most of the same route as loop 2 of the 50M/50k.  10 milers will now get their feet wet as they cross Elk Creek.  However, this means an added 1.5 miles of paved both.  But also also new tough trail for those who have done the 10 miler in the past years.
