August on the MST Challenge

Since the 2020 Mountains-to-Sea Trail 12M and 50K Challenge was canceled due to COVID-19, we want to give you trailheads another shot at an MST adventure and the chance to win some beautiful pottery awards (originally crafted by a local artisan for the race in April)!

Here’s the deal:

  1. Complete either 12 miles or 50 kilometers anywhere along the the MST anytime during the month of August.
    Your 12M or 50K effort must be all at once; not broken up over multiple days. [Please ensure your run is supported and/or you carry plenty of fluids!]
  2. Submit your GPS/Garmin/Strava data by 11:59pm on September 1 to confirm completion. Submit your results at this link.
There will be prizes!
  • Top 3 Overall Finishers, M/F for the 12M and 50K
  • Top Masters Finishers, M/F for the 12M and 50K
  • All participants will be entered to receive one of four $50 gift cards to Bull City Running Co.

We bring you this challenge in partnership with Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail
