Lake Conestee Nature Park

Greenville, Sc - June 6th 2020

Upstate Ultra is presenting its 1st Annual Lake Conestee 50k that will be held at a Lake Conestee Nature Park in Greenville South Carolina. These particular events will be held on a 5 mile loop that wraps around the entire trail system within the nature loops
It is our goal to aid any and all runners willing to accept this challenge with a fully stock station at the start of the loop with several bathrooms, access to crew stations, food vendors, music, entertainment and an encouraging hand! I encourage you to grab a friend and come out and view what the beautiful park and Greenville County has to offer! Proceeds will help fund the operation and sustainability efforts of the Lake Conestee Nature Foundation and Greenville County Recreation department.

Lake Conestee 50k - Course Map HERE

The 50k will consist of 6 laps of 5 mile loops that start and finish at the large shelter near the bathrooms and adjacent to the playground at Lake Conestee Park. The loop is 80% trail and wooden boardwalks and 20% paved. It climbs around 400 feet per loop which is 2,400 feet of elevation gain per the 50k race! 

 

Aid Stations

There will be a single aid station per the 5 mile loop. The Aid station will include such items: salt, crackers, cookies, pickles, oranges, water , tailwind, and soda. This is a CUPLESS event as runners are required to have their own hydration carrying bottles or packs. Our aid station volunteers are not there to service your every need so be self reliant.
