The Mountain Masochist is a point to point race is a challenging fall trail run through the Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Part of the Beast Series, it is known for it’s rolling terrain, with accumulated ascent of over 6,000′ (my calculation – Official Race is over 9,000′), and a reputation for being one of the more challenging 50 milers in the country.
The race starts with a short Out & Back section then travels a few miles on a road until it enters the mountain trails. Look for a fast start followed by some technical trail running.
