Old Glory Ultra (~50K) and 13 miler

November 10th, 2018


Kairos Wilderness Resort
Shumate Falls Road, Glen Lyn, Virginia 24093
(When driving there, look for a large sign for Kairos on the left and a gate with a lefthand turn on Shumate Falls Road.  Take that left turn, head up the mountain and you'll see the bathhouse and Ed's Place (race headquarters) on the left.

This is our inaugural year with this fabulous event that takes you through the beautiful Appalachian Mountains and crosses the Virginia/West Virginia border several times over the duration of the course. It has plenty of single track, some double track, and only ~1.5 miles on gravel road.

All runners will receive some sweet new headgear (trucker hat or wrap/buff depending on distance). All finishers will receive an OGU & Half finisher's patch with velcro backing

Half Marathon Course

Course Information:

To see video of the course visit our Facebook page!

The ultra course is 99% laid out - stay tuned for a course description and map! In the mean time you can check out the half marathon course on Strava.



Kairos Resort has camping options (tent camping and camper hookups with water and electric) and YURTS! If you want a sweet yurt (you know you do!), you better move quickly! More information can be found on Kairos' site. 

Princeton, WV is just 20 minutes away from Kairos with several options for hotels.  

Blacksburg, VA (home to TrailAdventure) is about 50 minutes away and has several hotels as well.


There will plenty of parking for racers and spectators. 

Aid Stations:

More to come!

In the mean time you can plan that we will have you covered with Tailwind, Honey Stinger products, and standard aid station food. 

In an effort to be more sustainable and be friendly towards the environment, the Old Glory Ultra is a cupless race. All runners will need to carry their own reusable cup throughout the race to use at aid stations. If you do not have one already, you have the option to purchase one of our TrailAdventure cups when registering and it will be waiting for you at packet pick-up.

Post Race Food:

There will be a cookout at the finish of the race with typical cookout fare and plenty of room to spread out and relax after all those miles. (Plus showers - there are showers!)


Weather during this time of year can be cool and overcast. Making for a great day to run! Highs are usually in the low 50s, but you will be on the trails with coverage, so it may feel even cooler.
