Race Description:

For more than a decade, the Cohutta 100 has been a staple on the endurance mountain bike scene. You’d be hard pressed to find an ultra endurance mountain biker who hasn’t raced the Cohutta 100, and they keep coming back. Hundreds of determined racers from around the world gather each year in the Cherokee National Forest to test their physical ability and mental will. Racers are challenged by over 12,000 ft of elevation gain through extreme single track and demanding fire roads.

Gravel Road Section 

Trail Description: This year's Cohutta 100 will use nearly all the singletrack sections of Brush Creek and Tanasi trail systems, then will go into a 65 mile gravel loop around the Cohutta and Big Frog Wilderness before circling back towards the Ocoee Whitewater Center. Once there, you'll head back into the last bit of single track and bomb down to the finish line.
