Course

The Eastern Divide Ultra is a scenic 50K trail race through the highlands of southwest VA. The point-to-point course will pass beneath waterfalls, meander through old growth Hemlocks and glide by waist high ferns. While we may not have the grand heights of the West, the Mountain Lake area has an average elevation of 4000’, which provides for cooler temperatures and a diverse ecosystem.

NOTE 2019: The course will have to be rerouted to avoid the new clay shooting range at Mountain Lake. Once we have the final course laid out we will be sure to let you know. But we promise to keep the joy of the last 7 miles in tack!

EDU is cupless.

In an effort to be more sustainable and be friendly towards the environment, the Eastern Divide Ultra is now a cupless race. All runners will need to carry their own reusable cup throughout the race to use at aid stations. If you do not have one already, you have the option to purchase one of our TrailAdventure cups (a Hydrapak SpeedCup) when registering and it will be waiting for you at packet pick-up.

Refunds

There are no refunds for this event. We do offer deferrals to one of our other events-High Bridge 50k and Old Glory trail races- or this event next year. Please contact us by June 15th to defer. Deferrals will not be accepted after.
