REGISTER FOR 2013. - The Sweetwater Creek State Park offers winding, moderately difficult trails with creek crossings in and around the park, following the lovely rapids of Sweetwater Creek, and venturing past Civil War-era textile mill ruins. No wheels of any kind nor pets allowed on the race course.
This 50k crosses the Sweetwater Creek twice - you WILL get wet. (but that's the extra fun part!)
The race will be open for 9 hours allowing for plenty of time for course completion. An intermediate cutoff of 4.5 hours at mile 17 will be enforced for runner safety.
Awards will go to top three (3) Women and Men overall, and first place (1) Masters winner.
All proceeds benefit Friends of Sweetwater Creek State Park

The trails of Sweetwater Creek State Park are well maintained, but vary from smooth and easy, to rugged and technical. There are four main trails in the park, Red, Blue, Yellow and White blazed trails. The SweetH20 50K utilizes all of the trails in the park, including some area outside the park nicknamed Top of the World (TOTW) and Powerlines. These areas are where runners will find some of the more challenging terrain.
This is a beautiful, very special place to run. To learn more about the elevation, terrain and wildlife of each of the park's trails, please see the detailed trail map provided by the Sweetwater Creek State Park.
