The Hot Hot Hundred is one of the most unique and challenging races in Kentucky.  PERIOD.  Held on a private tree farm just north of Morehead, KY the Hot Hot Hundred is a 10k looped course.  Runners have the option of an individual 10k race or a 2- to 5-person team 100k relay.  

Battle the intense heat and your urge to give up as you encounter steep off-trail ascents, plummeting descents, and a wide variety of plant and animal wildlife.  You’ll find great views from the ridgeline above and the valley below.  Come and hang with us at the farm all day and enjoy a day of running and partying that you'll never forget!


The Hot Hot Hundred 10k is a truly difficult, challenging, and rewarding 6.2 mile trail race.  Any veteran of the Hot Hot Hundred will attest to the challenge of this race. Test yourself, face the challenge, and go home knowing that you completed something that many people would not event attempt!

100k relay race

Our 100k Relay race is for teams of 2 to 5 runners.  Your choice!  All teams will run 10 consecutive laps of our 6.2 mile course.  One runner is allowed on the course for each lap.  NO DOUBLING UP WILL BE PERMITTED.  Read more on that in the Race Rules section below.

We use a tiered pricing structure for this race.  That means that we have set a certain number of spots available at each tier.  Once a tier sells out, then the price increases.  So, you need to register EARLY because you never know when spots will sell out and the price will go up.

Relay registrations are handled on an individual basis.  Meaning that each relay runner will register and pay for themselves.  IMPORTANT:  Whoever on your team signs up first must be the one to set up your team page within Eventbrite!  Runners still have the ability to purchase multiple "tickets" which means you can sign up your entire team if you choose.
