The 2021 Harbison 50K will be the 12th year of the race! The Harbison 50K/25K is a trail race in Columbia, SC. Runners will make their way through a wide range of trails that will be a warm welcome for the first time trail runner while giving the returning athlete a chance to break a firebreak course record!

The race has a cut off of 10 hours due to the State Forest Hours of operation. We are implementing a hard 5 hour first lap cutoff for the 50k runners. However, as in year’s past, as long as the runners and the race sweep are through the last aid station before the cut off, we will wait and record everyone as an official finisher!

The first two aid stations are approximately 6 miles apart, so please ensure that you have the necessary hydration and nutrition for the distance.
