February 25 - Mount Mitchell Challenge and Black Mountain Marathon - Mt. Mitchell

The Mount Mitchell Challenge is a 40 mile Ultramarathon held every year on the last weekend in February from the town of Black Mountain, NC to the top of Mt Mitchell and back down again. This race, intentionally run in winter to ensure harsh conditions, is regarded as one of the most difficult trail-running races in North America. The route travels up and down more than 8,000 feet in elevation. The Black Mountain Marathon follows the same route, but turns back at the Blue Ridge Parkway prior to reaching the summit. This event is limited to 200 participants and has become so popular that registration is conducted by lottery with limited slots held open for previous winners and those who have participated in 10 or more challenges. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
