The Scream! is a USATF certified half marathon run mainly on the upper half of the Ridge to Bridge Marathon course in the mountains and foothills of western North Carolina. The course is comprised of a 2.5 mile section of paved road at the top, with the remainder following the US Forest Service road through the Pisgah Forest. The elevation profile is best described by the name of the event: 2,000+ feet of screaming descent from Jonas Ridge down to the sleepy ghost town of Mortimer. Approval of the 2013 course requires US Forest Service approval.
The Scream! will be held on July 20, 2013. Registration for the event opens December 1, 2012 and will be tightly capped at 350 participants.
Be excited, because if you're prepared, you'll scream down the mountain on your way to your fastest half marathon ever. Be warned, too: 2,000+ feet of all-out descent over just 13.1 miles will take your quads and calves to a place they've never been before.
