2014 South Mountains Half Marathon:

Make plans to attend South Mountains Half marathon.
Nestled deep in the woods and steeped with folklore, South Mountains is the perfect place to enjoy nature and listen to tales about a local "Sasquatch" that is believed to live in this area.
Here you can see a majestic mountain range peeking out from the gently rolling landscape of the piedmont.

This course will challenge you from the start as you make your way up the mountain.
You will rise up and up and up until you will think you will penetrate the earths atmosphere.
When you reach the top then its down down down with a thrilling insane downhill race to the finish.
Fun for all on this extra wide double track course.
Course Information:

The course starts out on pavement (for spacing), Once on the trail you will begin your ascent on what feels like a never ending road to the sky. And just when you think you have reached the top, this mountain says "Oh No... theres a little bit more".

The high point on the trail comes at about mile 7. There are many ups and downs of rolling terrain, one serious water crossing, and four intense downhill miles that will send you screaming back to the finish. Oh, wait,... and one surprise uphill just when you think everything is over.

Great long distance veiws, extra wide track, and few obstacles make for a great Race. Just make sure you are in really good shape and plan on doing a lot of elevation here at South Mountain.
