Put your physical and mental strength to the test with the WC-50 Ultra Trail Marathon at the US National Whitewater Center, the premier endurance race in the greater Charlotte region. The event consists of two races – a 4-lap 50 mile race and a 3-lap 50 kilometer race – spanning the entire facility, and reflects our desire to meet the full array of needs for the Charlotte ultrarunner.

For the first time ultra competitor or those hoping to sharpen their skills at a distance just beyond the usual marathon, the 50k option will offer three 10.35 mile loops with approximately 3,000 feet of total elevation change. The 50k course will offer a mix of challenging singletrack climbs and rolling lakeside trails, offering something for runners of all levels. Runners will enjoy the same 12 hour cutoff for this race, providing the time necessary for all levels of competitors to complete their challenge!

In addition to well maintained trails and focus on participant amenities, our venue at the US National Whitewater Center allows the WC-50 races to lay claim as one of the most family and crew-friendly races in the nation. Full facilities, unique course access, and on-site entertainment combine to provide a truly interactive and exciting experience for those who support our competitors.
