About This Activity
SATURDAY - OCTOBER 10, 2015 - 8am
Come explore the same trails that William Bartram, "The Naturalist", ventured on in the late 1700's. This ultimate 50k will cover some of the most challenging ground in the Southeast. Runners will leave from downtown Franklin, NC at 8am and travel to the Bartram Trail area on Wallace Branch. Here runners will start the brutal climb that ultimately leads to Wayah Bald. From the Wallace Branch trail head to the top of Wayah Bald is aproximately 11 miles. The 50k willl have over 10,500' of climbing, making your legs feel weak just reading this. There will be multiple stations with food and water. When racers reach Wayah Bald they will circle the bald, resupply then head back down the Bartram Trail. Make sure you grab a t-shirt as you cross the finish line located on the square in downtown Franklin....you just earned a spot in the "I'm Incredible" book! Outdoor 76 will host the post race meal, music, beer....and oh yeah awards!
