Hellbender 100 Race

Friday, May 5, 2023 (4:30 AM - 6:30 PM) (EDT)


The Hellbender One Hundred is one of the most scenic hundred-milers on the East Coast. This course will take you through a grueling tour of the massive Black Mountains, deep into the valleys below and to the summit of Mt. Mitchell, the highest mountain east of the Mississippi. With an elevation change of ~48,000+ ft, runners will experience some of the most challenging and beautiful trails in all of Western North Carolina. You'll not want to miss this premiere, graduate level hundred through the heart of Southern Appalachia!

The Hellbender One Hundred is brought to you by NCMTR and Run828Foundation, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina. Our mission is to promote healthy, active, outdoor opportunities to individuals and families in Western North Carolina. We do this by providing opportunities, support, education, and funding. We host and sponsor community running events and provide structure and administrative support for the North Carolina Mountain Trail Runners running club. Run by a volunteer board of directors, we rely on funding through member enrollment, local business sponsors, and funds received from RUN828 sponsored races.
