Overview:

 The Pine Mountain Trail Run (PMTR) is a rebirth of an event that was held for over 20 years as a 46.2 mile run on the Pine Mountain Trail which is located near the town of Pine Mountain, GA and the resort attraction of Callaway Gardens. The distance has now been extended to 50 miles by the addition of a spur trail. The course is still all single track with the exception of road crossings. It is a challenging course with an abundance of rocks and short climbs. The 13 hour cutoff will prove to be a challenge to many. The field will be limited to 100 runners.

There will be 12 aid stations with the longest gap of just over 5 miles. The choice of food and fluids will be determined democratically so be sure to provide you choices on your entry form.

There will be a pre race meal offered on Friday night, free to runners and $10 for guests. It will be held at the Start/Finish area which is located at the Group Shelter which has heating and air-conditioning. There is also ample parking, picnic, playground and a small lake at the start/finish area making it an ideal location for friends and family of the runners to relax. The park cabins and campsites are within easy walking distance but reserve early as these will go quickly. There are many other accommodation options available by following the links above.
