  • You ran a successful marathon, but now you want to take it a step further? The challenging 50k Art Loeb Trail in Pisgah National Forest is a great progression in your trail running journey. It’s rare to get on trail support like this outside of very accommodating friends—not only do you get a guide by your side, but you also get two personalized aid stations set up with your chosen food and drinks and pick up and drop off. Along the way you’ll run up and down the Appalachian mountains for some of the best panoramic views in the southeast. What’s waiting for you at the end point of the trail might just motivate you even more—you’ll end your successful run at a brewery.

We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity.

      We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re travelling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in North Carolina, please refer to North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services.
