Competition Info:


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. The trail for the bike race is not technical. You won't need any special bike skills, you'll just need to show some grit. 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. There is a separate registration on the event's main page for the bike rental if you need one.

*Competition Break @ Lay's Hardware Center for the Arts - Refreshments and Music Provided 

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

*Competition Break @ Sugar Hill Brewing Co. - Refreshments Provided and Full Beer and Food Menu Available for Purchase

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 couple miles.

*There will be a built in break between events at a local establishment so that participants can recover (slightly) and enjoy some local food and drink (and music). We always encourage participants to support local businesses while in town, so please check out our Planning Your Trip page on our website


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