The Ultimate Challenge

Altamont Challenge - April 6th 2019 Travelers Rest, SC 

#UpstateUltra #SCUMRunners #AltamontHalf
The race series is proud to establish one of the most difficult and scenic road challenges in the southeast. A course that is nestled in the foothills and based in TRAVELERS Rest, South Carolina. The Heart of the Foothills was originally home to several Indian tribes, including the Catawba, the Creek, and the Cherokee. Travelers Rest gained notoriety as a stopover for weary travelers and livestock drovers. Travelers Rest boasts a colorful history dating back to America's early years. You will have the opportunity to summit the top of Greenville County near PARIS MOUNTAIN to look over the entire Upstate!
The race starts at Poinsett Park and quickly runs down to Altamont Road and ascends and descends this beautiful road before reaching the turnaround point and getting the lovely opportunity to run it again! NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART! This race will be scenic, fun, and rewarding to all finishers! Come and see if you can climb ALTAMONT!
