  • Details from event's RunSignUp.com listing:


    Breaks Interstate Park is one of only two such interstate parks in the United States. Located on the Kentucky-Virginia border, "The Grand Canyon Of The South" is the deepest canyon east of the Mississippi River and reaches craggy depths of over 1,600'. 

    The Breaks Ultra trail race is an extreme challenge for any runner. Starting and finishing within Breaks Interstate Park in Virginia, the race takes runners back and forth across the Kentucky-Virginia border and up and over the ruggedly tough Pine Mountain numerous times. Your breath will be taken away by the beauty of the scenery and the extreme challenge of the terrain at the same time. This 45(ish) mile race will challenge even the best trail runners out there.

    Is the ultra not your thing? Are you crewing for an ultra runner and want to get in a run in the morning to experience the Breaks? Join us for the Stateline Shuffle: a 4.8 mile trail run through Breaks Interstate Park that drops into the gorge and climbs back out via the popular River Trail!
