Jerdon Mountain Challenge



  • Heather Wright


  • Mountain Gateway Museum, 24 Water Street
    Old Fort NC 28762


Warm-up to the ORAMM or just come out and ride a 24-mile course that doesn't have you riding in circles! This is back-country racing at its finest with a shorter course and still all the amenities of a long distance endurance race. This race will run the same course as the ever popular Off Road Assault on Mt Mitchell but will end before the famed climb up Curtis Creek Road to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The race will still tackle 3,000' of climbing more than 24 miles as you hit some ORAMM highlights like Old Highway 70, Kitsuma, Star Gap and Jarrett Creek. Celebrate with a huge after party complete with pasta/salad feast, New Belgium Beer and Shannon Ridge Wine on the picturesque Gateway Museum grounds.

Admission: $80.00
