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, until you realize you aren't done...
What better way to spend a day than running through the beautiful Pisgah National and up to the summit of Table Rock Mountain? 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! This race is permitted through the US Forest Service - Grandfather Ranger District.
We are fortunate to have great sponsors like Fitsok, Catawba Brewing Company, and Steele Creek Park and Campground, who enable us to reduce our expenses, send more money to our beneficiary and provide 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 swear 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.
