Join Yamacraw 50K
The Yamacraw 50k is a point-to-point trail race that begins at the Lick Creek Trail in Daniel Boone National Forest and ends at the Blue Heron Mining Community in Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area.

Runners will be treated to miles of magnificent singletrack trails and scenic landmarks that include stunning rock overhangs, natural arches, and wonderful waterfalls. Runners will enjoy multiple water crossings as they run alongside the Big South Fork Cumberland River and adjoining creeks. The race ends with an iconic crossing over the river on a 100 foot high pedestrian bridge that leads runners straight to the finish.

Runners will not be able to leave anything on the buses, but we will have a vehicle available to transport “warm-up” clothes from the start back to the Stearns Heritage Hall, if there are things you’ll want at the start, but not once the race starts.
All 50K participants are asked to park at the designated parking areas in Stearns adjacent to the Heritage Hall.
