Chasing Trail 3hr, 6hr, & 12hr. Get ready to chase trails with us on the new Gateway trail system in Old Fort, NC. This timed event lets you choose your distance in 3 hours, 6 hours, or 12 hours. There are team relay options available! For the 12 hour, you can choose a team of up to 4 runners. For the 6 hour, you can choose a team of 2 runners. The course is a ~3.2 mile loop with approximately 380ft of elevation gain. This trail system is very approachable for beginner trail runners, while still providing a challenge as you add more and more loops.

 

Runners must complete at least 1 loop before the end of their time limit to be a finisher. Only loops completed within your time limit will be counted towards your total. Race fuel and hydration will be provided at the start/finish race base. Crews are welcome in the Gateway Trailhead parking lot.
