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.
