GOMR is run on the highways and back roads of Alleghany County, NC. Some of the most breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are right here. These are the roads we run. As the Head Gomer, I have personally run every mile of the route and know that it is challenging but spectacular. Sometimes I listen to music. Sometimes I want to hear the wind through the tall pines, the water rolling in the crisp mountain streams, and simply the quiet in this rural mountain setting.
Below is a map of the whole 104-mile loop. It will be completed once for the GOMR 1/2, and twice for full GOMR.
