Get Outside Mountain Relay, affectionately known as the GOMR, is the Best of the Blue Ridge according to Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine. Taking top prize in the Best Mud Run/Adventure Race category, second in the Toughest Race and third in the Best Running Event Over 13.1 miles, the GOMR is making its mark in the Blue Ridge Mountains running community. Head Gomer and founder Donny McCall says, “I’m so honored...we have something really special here with the GOMR.”
GOMR is an innovative 208-mile relay in which 12-person teams run two loops on a 104-mile course that takes them on a scenic journey through beautiful Alleghany County, NC. The elevation change of more than 22,300 feet over the 104-mile loop is challenging but the views are simply amazing.
