Come Oct. 4-5, folks from all over the United States and the world will be arriving in Pine Mountain, Ky. for the state’s first 100-mile race.
The Cloudsplitter 100 is endorsed by USA Track & Field as an official mountain, ultra and trail-running championship. There will be accompanying races of 25, 50 and 100 kilometers as well as food, music, games and storytelling.
Cutting through Pike and Letcher counties, the race route follows the Pine Mountain Scenic Trail, “one of the most physically demanding trails in the East,” and highlights the area’s rugged beauty and nearly untouched landscape as a promising possibility for Kentuckian ecotourism.
