About No Business 100

This beautiful autumn race treats runners to miles of technical singletrack trails and scenic landmarks. The No Business Hundred is a trail endurance race that begins and ends at the abandoned coal mining town, Blue Heron, just east of Stearns, KY. The course is a single 103.6 mile loop that traverses through the heart of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area across the state line into Tennessee and back on some of the oldest trails in the southeast. Each year the course is run in opposite direction of the previous year with odd years being run counter clockwise from Blue Heron.

Along the way participants will pass through towering sandstone arches & rockhouses, gaze upon spectacular overlooks & waterfalls, and visit abandoned farms and homesteads including the No Business settlement. This epic journey is an adventure through some of the most scenic and wild areas in the region.
