The Cohutta 100 is an ultra-endurance 100 mile (162 km) mountain bike race held annually in late April. The race starts and ends at the Ocoee Whitewater Center in Copperhill, Tennessee. The course is one large loop through the Cohutta Wilderness area with approximately 35% single-track and 60% remote forest service roads, and a total of over 12,000 feet of elevation gain. My racers one of the most challenging parts are the numerous small but very steep climbs.

The race has been one of the stops of the National Ultra Endurance Series since 2006. Jeff Schalk holds the record for the best finish time (6:23 in 2009) while Amanda Carey established a new record time for female finishers of 7:33 in 2011.
