The Pisgah National Forest has earned a growing reputation for having some of the best trails in the country, and the five-day, fully supported 11th annual Pisgah Stage Race in Brevard, N.C., delivers an unmatched sampler platter of some of the best singletrack anywhere.

It’s five days, 140 miles and 20,000-plus feet of elevation gain. The event includes five stellar routes of the East’s most rugged trails, with timed enduro sections each day. Experience spring riding in Pisgah with rhododendron tunnels, picturesque creek crossings, incredible leaf colors, and rooty, rocky singletrack.

The weeks’ events include a recovery zone with snacks and recovery drinks at the finish, Leaders’ Awards Ceremony and Happy Hour with adult beverages, exquisite locally catered dinners, and a Closing Ceremony Celebration Party.

This event is designed as a true race and not a test of survival.
