The River Gorge Trail Race utilizes the Cumberland Trail in Prentice-Cooper WMA. This all-singletrack loop boasts fantastic bluff views of the Tennessee River Gorge -- it's popular with first-timers and competitive racers alike.
The premier 50k trail race this side of the Mississippi, and "The East's legendary meat-grinder" as described by Trail Runner Magazine. StumpJump 50k is an epic, with over 5,000 feet of climbing on a technical course.
