2017 Course has MORE singletrack!
It’s a classic. For more than a decade the Cohutta 100 has been a staple in endurance mountain bike scene. You’d be hard pressed to find an ultra endurance mountain biker who hasn’t raced the Cohutta 100. And they keep coming back. Hundreds of determined racers from around the world gather each year in the Cherokee National Forest to test their physical ability and mental will. Racers are challenged by over 12,000 ft of elevation gain through extreme single track and demanding fire roads.
For 2017 approximately 18 miles of gravel road in the outer loop (forest service roads 99 & 67) will be replaced by 14 miles of old school, remote, backcountry singletrack in the most beautiful part of the forest. Total course mileage is about 95 miles.
Race course includes 4, double pass Aid Stations for a total of 8 Aid station passes. - see aid station mileage here
Our Aid Stations are well stocked with fresh water and snacks, and be sure to carry with you the hydration and nutrition you require according to your training and health needs.
Each racer is allowed three (3) one gallon drop bags.
