Blood Rock 50K Trail Race

The Blood Rock 50K Course Map and Elevation Profile
For the past three years the Southeastern Trail Series ended with the Tranquility Lake 50K and 25K Trail Races.New for 2016, The Blood Rock 50K replaces the Tranquility Lake 50K Trail Race. This is a totally different race from the previous years races. The course will be significantly more difficult with much steeper climbs on very demanding terrain. It will also be an incredibly exciting race to run. Runners will have a chance to see sections of Double Oak mountain very few people have ever seen. Runners will traverse along ridges on backcountry trails that time has almost forgotten. They will descend down the back side of The Mountain on an old wagon road time HAS forgotten. In places you can still see the two ruts cut by the wagons. Near the bottom you will even find the remains of a wagon wheel that has rotted away leaving only the metal rim and bearing case.

The 50K will follow the same course as the Blood Rock 50 Mile for the first 22.1 Miles to the 2nd Aid Station, Marina 1. Runners will then return by the same route to the North Trailhead. From there they will cross Findley Drive, (Watch for Cars) cross the parking lot and take the trail back to the Campground. All races will use this same trail to reach the finish.
