Foothills 50k & Bear Crawl 10 Miler

Conquer the Rock - MARCH 3rd 2018 at Table Rock State Park

#UpstateUltra #SCUMRunners #CTR50k #BC10M

Upstate Ultra welcomes you to the 3rd annual CONQUER THE ROCK race series that is held in beautiful Table Rock State Park. Table Rock State Park fits the bill for the natural beauty attributed to scenic Highway 11. The towering mountain, which gives the park its name, serves as a backdrop for the 3,000 acre park and its facilities. Below this section of the Blue Ridge Mountains, South Carolina natives and visitors can enjoy Table Rock State Park cabins, a campground and an old-fashioned swimming hole on one of the park’s two lakes.

The Conquer the Rock Ultra includes the Foothills 50k and the Bear Crawl 10 mile event with a pure, gritty, and natural feel that nestles itself in the heart of the foothills trail at Table Rock State Park. The race offers two distances that encompass a 10+ mile loop within the state park that climbs Table Rock Trail before wrapping around the Ridge Trail and back down Pinnacle Mountain to our trail head and home base at the "Barn".

The Bear Crawl 10 mile starts at Pinnacle pavilion and heads down the road for about 1 mile to the trail head before starting the long but rewarding journey of climbing up Table Rock Trail to the top of Pinnacle mountain! This course climbs several thousand feet of elevation of quad burning climbs with beautiful views and breathtaking valleys. The 50k runners are really lucky... they get to do it 2 more times

Cut off

The park will close at 6pm sharp so we are implementing a 10 hour cut off by removing all runners from the course sharply at 6pm. As this will affect the 50k we will implement a hard cutoff at 2:30pm. If you have not started the last lap of your 50k then you will be opted to stop or perform a shorter loop.
