About This Activity

This 25k+ course leaves the Fayetteville Town Park and rolls on mountain bike trails out past Kaymoor Top and then down into the New River Gorge. It passes by old mine entrances, gushing waterfalls, and a spectacular view of the New River Gorge Bridge before a challenging climb back up to the Park. With a total elevation gain of over 1500 feet this course will prove fast yet challenging!


AID There will be 3 Aid locations located at approximately 5, 9.5, and 15 miles. Aid stations will provide water/HEED and some various fruits and carbohydrates. In an effort to decrease the amount of waste, runners are strongly encouraged to run with some kind of handheld water bottle as cups will be limited at the aid stations.
