**This event sells out**
We do not offer a waiting list.
Come enjoy your choice of 18.6 of trail running, in the very place where forestry in America was born and nurtured. The Cradle to Grave 30k starts and finishes at the Cradle of Forestry, located just south of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Sliding Rock. You will run out the lush Pink Beds trail past fields of wildflowers and beaver ponds, cross creeks on bridges and rocks, move along forest service roads in the heart of Pisgah National Forest, and climb up to one of the most unvisited and spectacular views of pristine forest land available. The return trip will utilize several different trails, each with their own unique topography, beauty, and characteristics. After race lunch and entertainment will be provided. Become a part of history by celebrating trails and running at this fourth annual event.
Make a weekend out of your Cradle to Grave Experience:
Pre and Post Race Camping is available in designated areas of Pisgah Forest.
