Hungry Mother 25K & 50K

Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 8:00 am

Mark your calendars! The date for our 3rd Annual Hungry Mother 25K & 50K has been set! Start training now for this amazing course. Registration is now open through Ultra Signup! 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 our county’s children! 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 Sunday, March 31, 2019!

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. You can order additional food as for family and friends (or you) HERE. It is a ten-minute drive out to other restaurants.

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. Feel free to contact us with any questions at info@smythchamber.org or 276-783-3161.
