The Pisgah 55.5K will test the strength and endurance of racers by challenging them to complete a 55.5K course of nearly 100% Pisgah singletrack. The course traverses some of the great Pisgah classics: Black Mountain, Turkey Pen Gap, Laurel Mountain, and Pilot Rock!
The Pisgah 55.5k is also open to Ultra-Runners.
There will be three Rest Areas along the way that will be stocked with water, food (PB&J, fruit, salty snacks, sweet snacks, bars), first aid, and neutral mechanical support. Riders may send drop bags to each Rest Area!
