Hungry Mother 25K & 50K

Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 8:00 am

Nestled in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, Hungry Mother State Park offers a challenging network of trails. This 50K is two laps of a 15.6 mile course with approximately 3,500 feet elevation gain per lap. (The 25K will be one lap of the same course.) The park consists of some well-groomed as well as more technical trail sections.

Best of all, this race is ultimately a fundraiser for Imagination Library of Smyth County. Your registration helps get free books in the hands of Smyth County children! Registration is now open through Ultra Signup! Each finisher will receive a performance shirt, a meal, a beer, and a unique finisher award. The last day to register and be guaranteed a shirt is Thursday, March 14, 2019! After this day, the price also increases.

All of our race registrants will receive a code for 25% off reservations at Hungry Mother State Park!

Our meal is from Sister’s Cafe & Gifts, a favorite local restaurant. Each participant receives a boxed lunch included with their registration which includes a sandwich, chips, pickles, a cookie, and a drink. If it’s chilly, we will also have soup available. You can order additional food as for family and friends (or you) HERE. (It is a ten-minute drive out to other restaurants.)

Feel free to contact us with any questions at or 276-783-3161.

The top male and female runners for the 50K will receive $100 Altra Gift Card and a weekend stay at Hungry Mother State Park!
