Are you ready for a unique opportunity for a race with no boundaries and no set course? Are you prepared for a chance to explore, choose your own adventure, and set your own direction? On Saturday, August 22nd athletes will start at the same location (only revealed hours before race start time) and from there, all the choices are their own. Any athletes who make it further than 40 miles for the 12 hour race and 25 miles for the 6 hour race, as the crow flies from the start location within the time limit will earn their Escape Piedmont Ultra Medal.

 

There is no course, and athletes will not know the starting line until 2 hours before the run begins.  (The race will start within 75 driving miles of downtown Greensboro). This isn’t about who gets to a point the fastest, this is about who can get the furthest away by the end of the 6hr or 12hr clock!

 

All athletes must read the FAQ's before registering.

Choose Support

Unaided: Participants who register as "unaided" will complete the adventure without mapping software, phones must be off, and no outside aid is allowed. You must carry everything you need with you!

 

Aided: Aided participants can have their phone or GPS device on at all times and can use it to help them along the way.  They can also have a support vehicle to give them ice cold water with mint leaves and massages along the way!

Choose Solo or Team

Individual registration: For those looking for an extra challenge without a sidekick. 

 

Partner registration: Like the idea of forging your own route on your instincts alone, but want to make sure you have someone else to blame when you just wind up going in circles? Sign up for the team option!  With this option you and your partner cannot leave each other sides.
