Knock On Wood Ultra Series 100 Mile – Marietta, South Carolina
Upstate Ultra is presenting its 6th Annual Knock on Wood ultra series that will be held at a Pleasant Ridge in Marietta South Carolina. This running weekend series of races include ultra distances up to 100 miles along with kids run and Camp Spearhead 8k fun run/walk. These particular events will be held on a 5-mile loop that wraps around the entire Camp Spearhead which is home to year-long camps for children with disabilities.
It is our goal to aid any and all runners willing to accept this challenge with a fully stock station at the start of the loop with several bathrooms, access to crew stations, food vendors, music, entertainment, and an encouraging hand! This race welcomes ALL! I encourage you to grab a friend and come out and view what the beautiful park and Greenville County has to offer! Proceeds will go directly to Camp Spearhead along with any donations you would be willing to supply this camp for their needs throughout the calendar year.
The knock on wood ultra course is a 5-mile loop with a single aid station and a starting point at our park headquarters. The start and finish loop is also located near our aid station, tent area for (100 milers only), and cabin rentals. The course has 370 feet of gain per 5-mile loop and is generally wide and rolling. There is a shade over 90% of the trail and the park will be closed for our race only!
