Upstate Ultra welcomes you to Jones Gap State park and the 1st Annual Jones Gap Marathon and the Hospital Rock 9 mile. The course is a 3 loop (9ish mile) course that climbs and views all that the Mountain Bridge Wilderness area has to offer. The events will take place starting at Palmetto Bible Camp facility before entering the trail on the back side of Hospital Rock Trail. This course will have 10,000 feet of elevation GAIN over the 26.2 mile course. Let me say that again…10,000 feet up and 10,00 feet down. If you want to cover a race with 20,000 feet of elevation change you better put on your big boy/girl pants!
