Overview

This is a new event to the Wester North Carolina area for 2017. It introduces runners to the experience of true mountain-style running with steep climbs and downhills.

Description

The Hill Climb, 5k, & 10k Distances are separated by time to allow those crazy enough to attempt all three races.

The 5k & 10k will race up and down the mountain on a 1.5 mile loop which will gain and lose 500 plus feet each loop. Your quads will ache by the end of this one.

There is also a hill climb (roughly .25 miles) straight up the steepest part of the mountain! If you can run up this course without using your hands, you'll earn legendary status!

We also have a kids race (roughly 1k) that will allow them to get a taste of mountain running!
