Course Description:
The run starts at the Pink Beds in Brevard, NC and ends at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City, NC. The Smoky Mountain Relay course takes runners through some of the most beautiful, pristine, and challenging terrain in the Southeast. Along the route runners will see the magnificent granite dome of Shining Rock and spectacular views from the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Mountain to Sea trail. At night you will run far from city lights, but very close to the Appalachian and Bartram trails along the upper Nantahala River. Along the course, you will run through many picturesque valleys framed by tree-covered mountains and meandering streams. Speaking of streams, prepare for the opportunity to run through, over, and in the streams that cross our route.
Post Race Events:
Thanks to the folks at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, we are able to provide a world-class finish line celebration with hot showers, cold drinks, yummy food and some rockin’ mountain music. These fortunate participants will return home with vivid memories of running, camaraderie, and a few brief moments of sleep with 11 supportive friends who all shared in the beauty and mystique of the Smoky Mountains.
