Introducing the Flatrock 50k | 13.1 | 50/50 Challenge!
Hold onto your hydration packs, folks… It's time to meet your next Fall trail running tradition —the Flatrock 50k | 13.1 | & 50/50 Challenge!
On October 21st, Harbins Park in the small and quiet town of Dacula, Georgia, will transform into the ultimate playground for trail runners!
Remember when running was just… running?! Same. We’re big fans of grassroots ultras, so we’re going back to our roots & bringing you guys one heck of a fun, down-to-earth, no frills-chill, good old-fashioned trail race!
We’re keeping the prices as low as we can, and the stoke as high as possible! So come on out to Georgia, kick back for a day of Southern hospitality and epic racing on sweet Southeastern single track! (Say that 3x fast.)
Beginner & PR Friendly
Are you itching to try your hand -err- legs at trail or ultrarunning? Or maybe you're on the hunt for a trail PR? THIS IS THE RACE FOR YOU.
If you're looking for epic vistas or mega climbs and descents on mountains, that's not this! Flatrock 50k & half is as good as it can get for your first ultra or trail race, and hits the sweet spot of flowing trails with some hills that are just challenging enough to keep it interesting and still throw down some fast times!
This is a true trail race! The route will take runners through undulating trails winding through miles upon miles of trees. The trails are easy to follow and are not technical at all. As for those hills, they’re nothing that will take you longer than a minute or two to climb!
The 50k race will consist of four different loops, with a variation of one loop repeated. The half will consist of two different loops. Both races will take runners to aid stations that are accessible by their family and friends.
Cutoffs for each distance:
50k - 9 hours
13.1 - 5 hours
50/50 - 9 hours
The 50/50 Challenge
Now for the REAL fun…
Attention all you speedsters out there: If you're feeling kinda lucky, you can choose to sign up under the 50/50 challenge.
If you choose this option, when you complete your 50k, you will have the option of keeping the 50k finish OR continuing for another 20 miles to snag a 50 MILE FINISH.
YOU MUST COMPLETE THE 50 MILES WITHIN THE 50K's 9 HOUR STRICT CUTOFF! And once you commit, you’re locked in!
If you don't? You get ZERO credit for either distance.
If you do? You get a super exclusive 50/50 challenge shirt & a half credit towards your entry to come back and run again next year!
Think you got what it takes? We'll see!
Did we mention that this race is not just about YOU and your running adventures? Y'all are awesome and everything, but we're all about including the family and friends for the fun. So if you've got kids, bring ‘em on out! Harbins Park boasts an awesome playground that'll keep the kids entertained while you channel your inner trail beast. Plus, you'll pass by the start/finish line more than once, and the aid stations are easily accessible by your crew giving your personal cheer squad ample opps to shower you with love and encouragement (and also snag some wicked shots of you running like a champ for your socials of course!)
Swag, Awards, etc
All entrants receive Flatrock race socks to commemorate their race! 50/50 challenge runners receive a shirt upon completion of challenge. Complimentary race photos will be available to download and share. Additional swag is available for purchase during checkout!
