Lula Lake 5 Points 50/25

October 7, 2023

 

The Lula Lake Land Trust 5 Points 50/25 is Chattanooga’s Ultimate Endurance Mountain bike race. Racers will enjoy a grueling course packed with single track, climbs, downhills, rock gardens, and smooth flowy trails through the 5 Points Trail system, Lula Lake Land Trust, the Cloudland Connector Trail (including the 6.5-mile Long Branch/Nickajack section), and private property. Post-race activities include camping, music, vendors, food, and more.

Since a portion of the race course is on private property, no map or turn-by-turn is available.  The elevation for the 50 miles is below and is approximately 4700 ft. of elevation gain.  The 25 covers some of these same private trails and has an elevation gain of approximately 2700 ft.  Starting from the main gate of the Lula Lake Land Trust, the race begins on the pavement to thin the pack before hitting Five Points; it then combines most of the trails in the Five Points system with multiple segments of the Cloudland Canyon Connector Trail  (CCCT).

By the time racers find themselves approaching the Nickajack Road Trailhead, they’re 35 miles into the race, have ridden about 25 miles of prime singletrack…and then the fun starts. Those final 15 miles of the race combine several miles of trail on private property, linking the CCCT and Five Points to the trails at Lula Lake. It is through the grace of these private landowners, including the Long Branch Homeowners Association, that race is possible (course description RootsRated).
