Triple Lakes Ultra - Trail 40 Miler, 40k, and Half Marathon

Sat October 30, 2021 Greensboro, NC 27410 US Directions
40k/40M

 

Course Description:

The course is almost entirely on single track trail. Running this race is a true adventure that requires more concentration than road running. The terrain is rocky and rooty and can be treacherous. Fallen leaves conceal rocks, roots, sticks, and holes. Please note, there are several road crossings. Roads are not closed to traffic. You must look for traffic before crossing roads.

  • End of Townsend Trail - 19.5 Mile Mark - Must reach by 2:00 PM
  • Begin of Laurel Bluff Trail - 27 Mile Mark - Must reach by 4:00 PM
  • Begin of Nat Greene Trail - 31.5 Mile Mark - Must reach by 5:15 PM
  • Begin of Palmetto Trail - 35 Mile Mark - Must reach by 6:30 PM 

 

Special Needs Bag Info for 40 Miler participants:

40 Mile Runners will have the option to pack 2 Special Needs Bag and we will make these available at Mile 19.5 AND 31.5. You may drop off your Special Needs Bag at early packet pickup on Friday or race day. Mark your name clearly on your bag. Also mark clearly if the bag is for mile 19.5 or 31.5. You can pack any special food you will need, a change of clothes/shoes or a headlight (pack in the 31.5 mile bag if needed). 

Please note, we will bring these bags back to the race finish. However, we will not transport any bags until the last finisher has passed the Special Needs Bag point on the course. So the bags at mile 31.5 will not be transported back to the finish until many of you have already finished the race (and gone home).
