Due to the current COVID pandemic, we feel as though it is in our best interests to cancel the race for this year. We are unsure of when we will be able to gather together and provide you with a quality race experience. Attempting to schedule the race later in the year most likely would mean forcing participants to choose from too many rescheduled races. Please check out the Chief Wetona Challenge Facebook page for any updates, photos, etc. 

The new race date is Sunday, May 16, 2021. If you chose to have your registration rolled over, your name is still in our participant list.

Registration for the 2021 date will open on June 1st.

Race Date: May 16, 2021

14 Mile race start: 9:30 am; 7 Mile starts at 10:30 am

Race is capped at 350 runners - there will be no race day registration! Online registrations will be accepted until May 12th (mail in registrations until May 11th) or until sold out!

The Chief Wetona Challenge is comprised of one of two distances. You can choose either the 7 mile course or the 14ish mile course. All participants, family members and spectators are invited to join us post race for a pancake brunch and other delicious treats!

The 7 mile course runs through the beautiful Mt. Pisgah State Park. Trails are mostly double track and elevation gain is around 900 ft total. The first loop takes  you around scenic Stephen Foster Lake and the second loop takes you through the woods of the park.

Things become a little wilder on the 14ish mile course. You will start in the state park and then bang it up over, around, down, over and back down the mountain, through single and double track trails of both the state and Mt. Pisgah County parks. Be sure to say "Hi" to the Chief as you grab a quick drink at his aid station!

Proceeds from the race will be donated to local backpack programs and to help ReVibe Outdoors who provides free races for kids 12 and under - in 2019 donations totaled over $4000 to help feed kids and to help kids embrace trail running!
