2018 Shut-In Information

Race Day: Saturday, Nov. 3rd, 2018

The Shut-In Ridge Trail race is one of the oldest continuous-running races in the Asheville region, dating all the way back to  December 13, 1980. It all started when  a bold group of 64  men and women raced from George Vanderbilt’s home to his lodge up on Mount Pisgah – a route that was originally blazed by Mr. Vanderbilt himself.

The Shut-In Race is 17.8 miles over the historic Shut-In Ridge Trail beginning at Bent Creek near Asheville, NC. It climbs over 3,000 feet along the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Mt. Pisgah parking lot.

The race will begin at 10:00 AM on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018 at the North Carolina Arboretum’s Visitor Education Center. Enter from Highway 191 at the entrance ramp for the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Entry information

ENTRY IS CLOSED

Race numbers may be picked up at the start area from 8:30 AM until 9:45 AM on race day.

Runners CANNOT sell or give their place away. Runners have until October 1, 2018 to drop out and receive a full refund. After October 1st, runners will receive $50 of the entry fee back, and after October 15th runners will no longer receive any money back.

39th Annual Shut-In Ridge Trail Run Details

PACKET PICKUP: Pick-up on RACE DAY MORNING ONLY will be from 8:30-9:45am at the NC Arboretum.

10:00 AM at the North Carolina Arboretum.
Directions to the Arboretum: Exit 33 on I-26, take Highway 191 two miles south to the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance. Take Fredrick Law Olmstead Way to the Visitor Center.

NOTE: As this is a point to point race, please be certain to make advance arrangements for a ride back to the start. Please be prepared for whatever weather conditions we may have…and we have seen it all.

Parking at the NC Arboretum is limited. The Arboretum will charge $14 per vehicle left in the Arboretum after the race begins. Spectators and support crews should carpool as much as possible. There are options for outside parking if you can have someone pick you up, and parking at Sandy Bottoms, Bent Creek Baptist Church and at the Outlet Mal near I-26. Do not park at the upper lot at Mt. Pisgah.

ATTENTION RUNNERS: All race numbers must be worn on the front of your body and not folded up in any way. The pull tab must be in tact. Runners must yield to traffic.

TIME CUT OFFS: Bent Creek Gap (9.5 miles): 2 hours 15 minutes.

Highway 151 (16 miles): 4 hours

*If your number is pulled at these locations, you are no longer in the race. This is for your safety.

T-SHIRT: You have to finish to get the commemorative shirt. But hey, it’s only 18 miles with the uphill portions totaling more than 5000 feet of climbing and a net gain from start to finish of almost 3000 feet…..oh yeah, and 2000 feet worth of downhill.

ATTENTION SUPPORT CREW: All four wheels must be off the parkway when parking or you will be fined. Do not direct or stop traffic on the parkway. Runners must always yield to cars. Parking for the race is at the lower lot at Mt. Pisgah and a lot about a quarter mile down the parkway from the Mt. Pisgah turnoff. You can also park along the road leading up to the finish line and the parkway itself. No one except race officials from the race will be allowed to park in the upper parking lot. This is reserved for other parkway visitors. Runners are responsible for their own transport back after the race.

Good luck and Happy Trails!

Any questions? E-mail Norm at jusrun@jusrunning.com OR jane@jusrunning.com.

AID STATIONS: Water stations will be stationed every two miles on the course. There’s a total of seven or eight aid stations.

Spike-Free Ultra Low-Carb High Fat drink mix will be available at a few of the aid stations, but participants are still advised to provide their own nutrition (they can either carry it themselves or have a crew member hand it off to them at the aid stations).

Participants should be warned that aid (mainly just water) at various aid stations is very minimal compared with most other trail racers.
