Redbird Crest 100K

December 2, 2017 @ 7:00 am - December 3, 2017 @ 3:00 am UTC+0


We at Next Opportunity Events have been working super hard lately to put together the newest trail ultramarathon race in the Bluegrass State:  the Redbird Crest 100K!

Redbird Crest 100K is the only 100K in the Bluegrass State and takes place along the rugged and secluded Redbird Crest Trail system in eastern Kentucky.  This multi-use trail system is a well-kept secret in Kentucky, and we couldn’t help but turn it into one of the most challenging and daunting 100K trail races in the region!

Here’s what we’re talking about:

62 miles
10,400′ elevation gain
10,400′ elevation descent
Rocks. Sand.  Mud.  Dirt.
Steep 25% grades
9 aid stations
3 crew access points
Customized awards and swag for all runners
20-hour cut off

The race starts and finishes at the Peabody Trail in the Redbird Ranger District of the Daniel Boone National Forest.  The climbs and descents are steep.  The terrain is ruggedly technical.  Redbird Crest is the ultimate trail running test of will, strength, perseverance in Kentucky.  Visit the race web page (below) for directions to the race, course maps, and more.
