Black Toenail Friday Half Marathon and 7.5 Miler. A new tradition has arrived! Last year's event sold out, so do not wait until the last minute to sign up! Relax on Thanksgiving and hit the trails for your holiday running race on Black Friday with Trivium Racing for our half marathon! This race will be taking place on the beautiful trails of Proud Lake State Recreation Area. The trails are well groomed and have very little in the way of hills! Drop the family at the mall, and come on out for a great race. One of the best parts about The Black Toenail Friday Half and 7.5 mile race is that you can sleep in. With a 11:00 AM start time, you can relax and enjoy Thanksgiving knowing you have plenty of time before the starting gun goes off! The half marathon is a heavy half, the course comes out to 13.4 miles. We may look to modify in year two to get the course to 13.1 but this is the most scenic, safest and all around best course option. The 7.5 mile course is a 1 lap version of the half marathon, same great course, sweatshirt and medal with a lot less work! www.triviumracing.com/event/black-toenail-friday-half-marathon-7-5-miler

King Of The Mountain Ultra 50k. We can't believe there isn't a trail ultra here already! Kings Mountain State Park is an amazing venue for an all trail, well supported, challenging 50K! For those who have done our Pilot Mountain to Hanging Rock 50 miler and 50K, you know this will be a great event! This will also be a tune up for our 50K, and 100K Borderwars event that will use Kings Mountain State Park (SC), Kings Mountain National Park (SC), and Crowder Mountain State Park (NC) next spring! While there are no crazy steep climbs like at Hanging Rock, there is a lot of elevation change throughout the course. The best part about this race is the isolation. These beautiful trails offer a lot of solitude and tranquility during the event. We will have a course map, with elevation, and waterstops. Plan on tons of support, an awesome finishers shirt and medal, and an experience you will remember for a lifetime! The course has a generous 10 hour time limit. This will allow people to average just over 3 mph and still finish! www.triviumracing.com/event/king-mountain-50k
