The GOMR is a 104-mile loop around Alleghany County, NC designed to give runners a taste of our whole community. There are 18 sections to the loop that will be run twice for the GOMR. Run on mostly rural back roads and through the small town of Sparta, you’ll love the breathtaking views at the tops of climbs and the serenity of running with light traffic. Teams will camp in GOMR Village and start from there. Once runners begin, our shuttle system will carry the next runners out to their starting points. When runners finish their leg and pass off the baton (slap bracelet), they will be shuttled back to GOMR Village where they can relax, stretch out, shower, and enjoy time between runs with their team and the larger GOMR Nation.

The number for participants for the race is capped to 600.
