Big Hill Pond's 50/25K will have something for everyone. The event is run on the 3rd Saturday of October every year. The race will have 31 or 15.5 miles made up almost entirely of single track trail with only a little crushed gravel park road to help string out the competition.
The race will feature a fire tower that you will have to climb, and a swamp boardwalk that is almost a half mile across. The history of the area comes from the local sheriff Buford Pusser, who is known for his virtual one-man war on moonshining, prostitution, gambling, and other vices along the Mississippi–Tennessee state line.
The race will offer enough scenery and elevation for the most grizzled trail runner but should be doable for the first timer.
