Jumpin’ the Stump

get more from BRO

At the beginning of October, ultra runners gathered in Chattanooga to race the Stump Jump 50K, a 32-mile race made up predominantly of singletrack around Signal Mountain a few miles outside of downtown. The race is known for its rocky singletrack and brutal six-mile climb to the finish. Photographer Andrew Kornylak was there to document the event as returning champion Josh Wheeler attempted to finish the race in under four hours. Wheeler left it all on the trail in during the Stump Jump, but was unable to finish under four hours. Watch Kornylak’s video that details the struggle and Wheeler’s passion for the race course.
