Pinhoti Trail Series began with the Mount Cheaha 50K as its inaugural race to the top (highest point) of Alabama. The dream and desire was to draw interest to trail running from the southeast and beyond and incorporate as much of the Pinhoti Trail system as possible. As Mount Cheaha grew, thus creating the “Series”, Pinhoti 100 was born. The Pinhoti 100 is a Point to Point Trail run starting in Heflin AL on the unmolested Pinhoti single track trail. Runners will make their way over the highest point in Alabama while navigation over rocks, through creeks and across beautiful ridge lines of the Talladega National Forest. The course will consist of 81 miles of single track, 17 miles of jeep road and 4 miles of pavement and will finish on the rubberized track in the Sylacauga High School Football Stadium.
Pinhoti 100 is a Point to Point endurance run starting at Pine Glen Campground in Choccolocco Mgt Area just northeast of Heflin AL. 100.59 miles in length with just over 14,000 ft of climb and descent with a total of 28,000 ft of elevation change. Pinhoti Trail Series races currently travel through the trail systems in Alabama with numerous creek crossings, rolling mountains, and breathtaking overlooks.
