Relay runners love the Smoky Mountain Relay, which offers 206 miles of trails, forest service, and rural county roads that traverse this beautiful area.

START TO FINISH:

The overnight relay run starts at the Pink Beds Park in Brevard, NC and ends at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City, NC. The Smoky Mountain Relay course takes runners through some of the most beautiful, pristine, and challenging terrain in the Southeast.

Along the route runners will see the magnificent granite dome of Looking Glass and spectacular views from the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Mountain to Sea trail. At night you will run far from city lights, but very close to the Appalachian and Bartram trails along the upper Nantahala River. Along the course, you will run through many picturesque valleys framed by tree-covered mountains and meandering streams.

This overnight running relay explores the beautiful and challenging terrain of the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina.

Thanks to the folks at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, we are able to provide a world-class finish line celebration with hot showers, cold drinks, yummy food and some rockin’ mountain music.

These fortunate participants will return home with vivid memories of running, camaraderie, and a few brief moments of sleep with 11 supportive friends who all shared in the beauty and mystique of the Smoky Mountains.

The Smoky Mountain Relay consists of 12 person or 6 person ultra teams that rotate through 36 transition areas. Each relay team member on a team of twelve runs 3 legs of varying lengths and difficulty and will cover an average total distance of 18-20 miles. Teams of 6, known as ultra teams, will run 6 legs of varying lengths, for a total of 35 to 40 miles. We may be the only relay that recognizes ultra team finishers with a version of the finisher’s shirt that says “Ultra” on the back.  (For more on how the relay works, CLICK HERE.)

Smoky Mountain Relay has a NO REFUND policy. Please note that we do not offer any refunds or discount codes if you cancel your registration for this event.

TRANSFER POLICY:

Smoky Mountain Relay has a NO TRANSFER policy. A new captain can be designated from within the team roster up to 10 days before race weekend.
