NO BUSINESS 100

Pickett CCC Memorial State Park Group Camp

Come run the No Business 100 this fall. This beautiful autumn race treats runners to miles of technical singletrack trails and scenic landmarks.

The No Business Hundred is a trail endurance race that begins and ends at the Group Camp in Pickett CCC Memorial State Park. The course is a single 101.6 mile loop that traverses through the heart of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area starting in Tennessee then crossing the state line into Kentucky and back on some of the oldest trails in the southeast. We reverse the direction of the course each year and award a special buckle for runners who complete the course in both directions.

Along the way participants will pass through towering sandstone arches & rockhouses, gaze upon spectacular overlooks & waterfalls, and visit abandoned farms and homesteads including the No Business settlement. This epic journey is an adventure through some of the most scenic and wild areas in the region.

With just over 15,000 feet of elevation gain, the No Business Hundred may appear at first glance to be a walk in the park but make no mistake, the technical terrain and remote setting present a challenge that make it a unique hundred mile course.

Drop bags for start/finish can be left in your personal vehicle, bunkhouse, or personal campsite. Do not leave them at the Dining Hall! We are not responsible for drop bags lost or stolen.

*Crews going to the Duncan Hollow Aid Station will need to ride the provided shuttle out and hike-in 1 mile.
The Duncan Hollow Aid Station will allow for crew however because of very limited parking available on this road and the need to keep this road open to emergency vehicles, we will be running two 14 person passenger vans from the Bandy Creek Pool out to the drop off point 1 mile from the Duncan Hollow Aid Station.
