ELKHORN CITY, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky tourism officials say a 100-mile trail race along the top of Pine Mountain is planned for early October.

The Cloudsplitter 100 is set for the weekend of Oct. 3 and 4. State tourism officials say the event is part of the Kentucky Outdoor Adventure Games taking place during October. Officials say the out-and-back course - as well as the accompanying 100k, 50k and 25k races - will wind along the rocky Pine Mountain Scenic Trail through Pike and Letcher counties in southeastern Kentucky.

The Pine Mountain Scenic Trail traces a geological fault line along the southern Kentucky-Virginia border, stretching from Breaks Interstate Park to near Whitesburg. The trail offers scenic views of Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee.

Officials say the registration deadline for the race is Sept. 27.
