Moonbow Ultra - WHITLEY COUNTY

The Moonbow Races are out-and-back trail races that begin at the Moonbow Trail head near the Visitor's Center in Cumberland Falls State Park. The courses take runners along the Sheltowee Trace Trail, Kentucky's longest trail. Runners will be treated to miles of winding, single-track trails and natural landmarks that include stunning rock overhangs, bark camp cascades, and magnificent waterfalls. Runners will enjoy scenic views as they run alongside Class III-IV Cumberland River and adjoining creeks. The races end with an iconic finish at the base of one of the most famous wonders of this region, Cumberland Falls. Standing 68 feet high and 125 feet wide, with an average water flow of 3,600 cubic feet per second, this waterfall has earned it's nickname as the Niagara of the south. Runners who stay after the event, depending on cloud visibility, could witness the Moonbow of the Falls which is a rare occasion that you can't see anywhere else in the Western Hempishere.

The Moonbow 50k is challenging but still a great race for those looking to complete their first ultra or those gearing up for their new race calendar
