Start: 6:00 am


Welcome to the Highlands Sky 40M Trail Run, the premier ultra-marathon in the Mountain State! The event is centered inside the Canaan Valley Resort State Park while most of the course travels through the surrounding Monongahela National Forest.

The course traverses the Roaring Plains and Dolly Sods Wilderness Areas through some of the most rugged and beautiful terrain in West Virginia. Containing the highest plateau in the eastern United States, Dolly Sods has a landscape of rocky terrain, stunted trees, and mountaintop meadows traditionally known as ‘sods’. Dolly Sods is known for pristine vistas and lifeforms characteristic of more northern latitudes due to elevations ranging from 2,500 ft. to 4,700 ft.. As a race participant, you’re sure to enjoy the varied trail terrain through northern hardwoods, stunted red spruce, and heath barrens, running over woodland paths, ancient sphagnum bogs, and rocky and boulder filled plains.
