Mountain Masochist Trail Run 50 miler
Course: Beginning at Lynchburg KOA Campground, runners loop the camp lake and cover a short road section before entering National Forest land. The course then meanders northward over various dirt and gravel roads in the National Forrest before runners have to negotiate the second half of the course. Leaving Long Mountain aid station, the second half includes dirt & old logging roads as well as several miles of beautiful single track trail. Many say the race is just beginning when you leave Long Mtn. Upon reaching the last aid station at Porters Ridge, runners course downhill 2.9 miles toward the finish in Montebello. The entire MMTR course traverses some of the most beautiful areas of the Blue Ridge right around peak fall foliage.
