The Challenge is this: Begin at dawn in Black Mountain, the quaint ’front porch of Western North Carolina’, and follow trails to the ’rooftop’ of Western North Carolina, the 6,684’ summit of Mount Mitchell - eastern America’s highest point - then return to the start/finish area!  With a starting altitude of 2,360’, the elevation gain for this 40-mile run will be 4,324’ - in the first 20 miles! Race founders Wendell Begley of Black Mountain Savings and Trent Thomas from Black Dome Mountain Sports saw a need for this kind of event for both the elite athlete and the weekend warrior. Their goal was to design a race that was attainable physically while offering the opportunity to test oneself against the often-uncooperative forces of nature!
