Roots and rocks; hills and creeks; views and memories… We offer them all and more at Table Rock Ultras. Your goal is the finish line, but lying between you and that goal is a lot of climbing, creek crossing, rock-hopping, gel-taking, and limit-pushing. The panoramic view from the summit of Table Rock is a perfect reward for all your hard work, and then you realize you aren’t yet done…

Are you in???

The numbers are these: 7,000′ and 11,000′ of climb for the 50K and 50M, respectively, but numbers can be deceiving and it’s going to feel like more. We’ll give you the bib, the aid stations, and the course markings. The rest is up to you.

What better way to spend a day in Autumn than running through the beautiful Pisgah National and up to the summit of Table Rock Mountain? It’s certainly more rewarding than anything you’ll find with a couch and a remote. Our start/finish host is the family-friendly Steele Creek Park and Campground, which makes for an awesome base camp. Proceeds benefit the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, a 1,000+ mile trail that connects western and eastern North Carolina, and scenic places in between (including part of both courses.) In 2014, we raised $3000 for the MST.

We excited to have as our 2015 sponsors: Champion, Great Outdoor Provision Company, Catawba Brewing Company, and Steele Creek Park and Campground. Having awesome sponsors like this means fewer expenses, with more money going to our beneficiary and a more complete experience for the runners. If you are returning from last year, you have an idea of what to expect. If you are considering it for the first time, know that we are working hard to make this a memorable experience. We want you to laugh, cry, and maybe even cuss a little bit and we hope to see a smile of either relief or accomplishment (or both) on your face when we see you at the finish line.
