Sadlers Creek Stumble

Posted by on October 6, 2020

Sadlers Creek State Park – Lake Hartwell

November 7th – 8th 2020

Welcome to the 2nd Year of the Sadlers Creek Stumble! This event is sure to bring out speed in our experienced runners and bring out the best in our first timers! Sadlers Creek State Park sits on 395 acres on a peninsula that extends into Lake Hartwell, one of the Savannah River reservoirs. Campsites available on Lake Hartwell at one of lakefront sites, observing wildlife and recreational water sports are only a small sampling of activities to be enjoyed in the park. The event will be run on a 6.55 Mile loop that encompasses the entire park (85% trail- 15% road). The course will run right pass campground loops 1 & 3 during each loop.
At this time we are still a go for the Sadlers Creek Race Series with a few modifications to adhere to state park policies and to provide an opportunity to race during the pandemic  We will NOT be offering an aid station at this time so all runners need to bring any food/nutrition they will need during the event with them. We will have a water source available during each loop.

  • Sadlers Creek 50k 8:00am on November 7th

Packet Pickup

Please arrive 90 minutes prior to your race start to ensure you can locate parking, bathrooms, packet pickup and set up your personal aid station if needed. You can pick up your race bib and any apparel items purchased race morning near our timing tent located near our start/finish line. Apparel will be for sale on race day.

Bib # & Timing Chip

Please locate the Bib # Sheet at packet pickup. It will be organized by distance and in alphabetical order. Find your name that corresponds with your assigned bib # and give that number to one of our volunteers at packet pickup. Please make sure that your bib is on the front of your body and is visible when you cross the finish line. Please make sure to return your timing chip and bib along with the reusable BibBoard to the correct storage bin located at the finish line prior to getting your finish medal. Participants who lose or neglect to return their timing chip will be asked to mail it in or pay $25 to have the reusable chip replaced.

Race Swag

All race participants will receive an Upstate Ultra Sticker and a unique hand made finisher award. Not everyone likes shirts so we have provided an option to purchase an Upstate Ultra Tri-Blend Shirt, Performance Socks, Trucker Hat, or Trail Buff.

Sadlers Creek Course Map HERE

The course is a 6.55 mile loop with only a half mile section where runners will be double backing. The course climbs 190 Feet per 6 mile loop. (Relatively flat with a few mole hills) From the course you will expect to see Lake Hartwell on several occasions, deer roaming the peninsula, and tall pines towering over the lake! This will be one of your fastest 50ks to date or one of your most enjoyable looped 24 hour runs. If you are a beginner or love the shorter distances we have a 10k and half marathon option. The course will have a series of directional arrows that will be placed at all intersections. Please follow all directional arrows to stay on course. In the event that you make a wrong turn please backtrack to your original spot of confusion. Cutting the course (even if unintentionally will lead to a disqualification)

Race Awards

Top 3 Male and Female will receive a custom hand made award by our partner of Next Up Opportunity! Each finisher will receive a finisher medal that will be branded with the race logo and come with a custom race patch on the backside! We will also publish our age group results that will coincide with our Race Series. To learn more about our race series and awards please visit our results page here: HERE
