The Cass 5K Stump Run is a scenic trip through the area in and around the Cass Scenic Railroad State Park. Cass was a lumber town and the base for a massive logging operation in the early 20th century. The sawmill is now a rusting hulk and the trains carry tourists instead of logs. The Cass Stump Run route is mostly on an old railroad grade and passes through the site of a plant that extracted chemical from the bark stripped from logs. The course runs through a mix of history and great scenery.

The course starts and ends on Front Street in Cass. Total elevation change over the course is less than 75 feet and the majority of the course is at least partly shaded.

The course starts on Front Street in Cass then descends to the Greenbrier River Trail (GRT). The largest part of the run is on the GRT, which is a former railroad grade that is essentially flat. The trail hugs the Greenbrier River and offers river views.

You will travel to mile marker 79 on the GRT where you will turn around and run up the river trail toward the town of Cass. You stay on the trail until to you see the arrow directing you towards the Extract Plant ruins. You will then travel through the ruins and up a gravel/stone road until it reconnects with trail. The Extract Plant ruins portion of the race is the most difficult and has some uneven terrain.

From this point you head up the GRT towards the town of Cass. You will enter Cass at Front Street. The Finish is on Front Street.
