More than 24 hrs of testing yourself against yourself.... are you up for the challenge?

Next Opportunity is now giving you the chance to take a once in a lifetime journey along the Sheltowee Trace with the War Hammer 100 Mile Endurance Run.  The War Hammer 100 starts at the Natural Bridge State Park in the beautiful Red River Gorge and travels south to Wildcat Mountain - site of the Civil War Battle  in Laurel County.  Over 37 miles run through Jackson Co which covers some of the prettiest and hardest miles of the race along with several water crossings.  Challenge yourself to 100 miles across Kentucky.  One way.  One weekend.  It will feel like battle against yourself, against your fellow runners, and against the environment.  Only those with the will to persist will reach the finish line at Wildcat Mountain.

Chief Blackfish of the Shawnee gave Daniel Boone the nickname "Sheltowee".  The name meant "Big Turtle".  The Sheltowee Trace National Recreation Trail is the backbone of that forest stretching 323 miles from Tennessee to Morehead, Kentucky.
