Fire Break 50 Mile & 5 Mile FKT Challenge Harbison State Forest - Columbia SC May 14th 2022   Harbison State Forest is a unique location in Columbia, South Carolina. Over 2100 acres and more than 20 miles of trails make Harbison State Forest a great place to be in nature in an urban environment. It starts and ends in the same location allowing runners, hikers, and mountain bikers to experience all they would expect of being outdoors. Steep climbs, declines, a creek crossing are just some of the features this trail offers. The history of the Forest dates back thousands of years. Catawba and Cherokee tribes frequently traversed the woodlands to reach an ancient fording location on the Broad River. In 1951 the South Carolina Forestry Commission purchased 2,135 acres of land on the Broad River from the Board of National Missions for the Freedmen of the Presbyterian Church. The Church stipulated that the land be named "Harbison Forest" in honor of a major benefactor In 1981, the Forestry Commission approved a master plan for the long-term development of the tract. The goal was to provide a public greenspace to serve as an educational environment promoting the value of the state's forests and encouraging the stewardship of all of our natural resources.

To learn more about our race series and awards please visit our results page here: HERE   Address Runners can enter the park at the following address: 5600 Broad River Rd Columbia, SC US 29210. Once you enter the park please follow the signs to the designated parking area and race staging area.    Firebreak Course Description Course Map HERE Elevation Gain per 5 Mile Loop - 260 Feet The course consists of a 5 mile loop with 260 feet of climbing per loop. The trail is single track with minimal roots. We will have a series of directional arrows that will be placed at all intersections. Please follow all directional arrows to stay on course. In the event that you make a wrong turn please backtrack to your original spot of confusion.

 

The Relay This is a 50 Mile Relay - Teams up to 5 People running the 5 mile loop 10x. Runners can complete two consecutive loops but teammates are not allowed to run 1 loop more than any other teammate. I.E. If a team of 3 people are racing the 10 loop race then runners 1 & 2 cannot run 4 loops while teammate 3 only completes 2 loops. This prevents stacking teams while utilizing the handicap advantage

 

Aid Stations There is one aid stations on course that will be located at the start/finish loop. The aid station will be fully stocked with tailwind, soda, water, cookies, salt, chips, and crackers. This is a cup less event so runners are required to carry a hydration bottle if they will need fluids during the race. We gladly accept aid station donations of food items that you like to see at races. Our staff is very busy with course marking, timing, packet pickup, and communication with runners, that it does make it hard to prepare some amazing tasty treats in-between laps so feel free to contribute a little slice of heaven if you can! Thank you   Eco-Standard In an effort to be good stewards to mother nature we will not have any of the following items at ANY of our events. This is in an effort to reduce the carbon footprint being placed by endurance events throughout the world. Please have a cup or hydration bottle if you will need to consume water/nutrition during the event. Please bring your own fork/spoon for any post race meals. Please bring your own bags for items collected at the race.
