Competition Info:

THERE ARE THREE EVENTS: BIKE, RUN, AND A CARRY

All three will be very App(ugh)lachian (if you know what that means). Participants will be scored on how they rank in each event and the winner will be the person with the most points at the end of the day.

Event #1 - 6 mile bike
Mountain, gravel, cross, or hybrid bike will do. There will be bikes available to rent through Clinch Life Outfitters when you sign up if you don't have one already (shuttle included). Bikes are first come, first served.

Event #2 - 10k run
We'll see who's really App(ugh)lachian here. This race will separate the contenders from the pretenders. It will be beautiful and it will be brutal. It will also be on the Spearhead Trail Systems www.spearheadtrails.com.

*Competition Break - Refreshments Provided

Event #3 - Carry
We're calling this the "Food City 500". Some of you may have an idea what that means; but, really, that just means none of you have any idea what that means. Here's an idea: you're going to be carrying about 20lbs for a mile or two.

*There will be a built in break between Event #2 and Event #3 at a local establishment so that participants can recover and enjoy some local food and drink. We always encourage participants to support local businesses, so please check out our Planning Your Trip page on our website https://appughlachian.com/planningyourtrip/

Prizes:

First Place Overall - 4hr Guided Kayak Tour For Two with Clinch Life Outfitters
