A race in The Birthplace of Country Music and The Birthplace of Yeti Trail Running
Run alongside the famed crooked river where the yeti and his friends learned to swim and fish and leave the river for a trip up to the most famous country fire tower life gets discussed and the moon gets howled at !

TROUBLESOME HOLLOW

Why Troublesome Hollow? I doubt that anyone who grew up in the heart of Appalachia doesn’t have fond memories of a Troublesome Hollow or Troublesome Creek. I wanted this race name to resonate with folks who come and run the race from outside Appalachia. So they too good have fond memories of the heart of Appalachia which is Southwest Virginia! See you Soon !!

Course

The course is flat and fast along the river and over swinging bridges and trestles ! Just one small hill up to the Firetower !! And then a run back down to the finish !

Refund Policy

As a runner it’s inevitable that you’re going to register for a race that at some point later on you’re unfortunately not going to be able to start for one reason or another. It happens to all of us, especially as race registrations need to open months in advance of the races themselves, and life happens during those interim months: Injuries, work, family emergencies, etc. We assure you we get it; we really do. And we strive to be as understanding and cooperative as we practically and financially can.
But just because the race hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean we haven’t already incurred significant expenses related to that race. We pay taxes on the income from the entry fees; we pay for permits, insurance, and supplies (including race shirts, buckles and other awards) For all of these reasons and more we cannot offer refunds, deferrals or transfers.
