Because of the Covid pandemic, and the inability to secure the permitting within the required planning time, we have made the difficult decision to go with a virtual format for the race this year. For a $50 registration fee, you will receive a t-shirt, a neck gaiter (we all need more masks, right?!) - AND you will get an automatic pass through the lottery for the 2022 races! This means that, while you would still pay the normal entry fee for 2022, you would not have the nailbiter while waiting to see if you made it through the lottery, you're a shoe-in! For the 2021 runs, we encourage you to make your way into Black Mountain during the month of February and having a run on the course (you can find maps on this page). Submit your time and story, with any pictures, to our Facebook page and we will celebrate everyone's day on the mountain. Then, mark your calendars for the last Saturday in February 2022 and we we all meet back in Black Mountain in person!
