Rock 2 Rock Trail Run – May 23, 2014 – Black Mountain, NC

Rock 2 Rock Trail Logo

You must do this race at least once. The disclosures are not exaggerated. I did it in 2009 and it kicked my butt. It’s a 10k-ish distance.

FROM THE RACE ORGANIZER

  • This is a technical and demanding course. A good estimate is to add about 60% on to your usual 10k time.
  • You will not be able to run the entire course.
  • There will be a single water station at the high point (Eden Rock) – roughly 3.5 miles into the course.
  • Roots, rocks, downed trees, low limbs and very steep terrain are just some of the challenges, but the rewards are some sweet single track and an unmatched view off Eden rock. You will be amazed to be only minutes from I-40 and feel so remote.
  • OA Awards and 3 deep in 10 year age groups.
  • (0-19,20-29,30-39,40-49,50-59,60-69,70+).
  • Logo hat or visor to each participant.

REGISTRATION/INFORMATION

Online registration is available at Ultra Signup. For more information, visit the race website.

Weekend Race Roundup – April 26, 2014

2014 Race Roundup

Three area races to choose from on the last weekend in April. The Legacy Run in Brevard offers a 5k and 15k option. The 15k is a good choice for those getting ready to run the Biltmore 15k in May and/or one of the two half marathons the first weekend in June (Asheville Half Marathon and Downhill at Dawn Half Marathon). In Spruce Pine there’s the Run for Holland 5k which raises money for Down Syndrome awareness and offers cash prizes. Finally, in Sylva there’s the Greening up the Mountains 5k which is held in conjunction with the Greening up the Mountains Festival.

Warrior Dash – May 17, 2014 – Huntersville, NC

Warrior Dash Logo

The very popular Warrior Dash is coming soon to an obstacle course near you. On May 17, there will be a Warrior Dash in Huntersville (just north of Charlotte).

EVENT OVERVIEW

Warrior Dash is a fierce 5K running event that challenges and welcomes all athletic abilities. In 2014, there will be more than 50 events worldwide, in locations across the United States, Canada, Asia, Europe, Mexico, South America, and Australia. Participants at each location will enter the Battleground and conquer 12 obstacles over more than three miles of terrain. Participants earn their Warrior title by crossing the finish line.

This year, Warrior Dash brings the largest obstacle in its history, “Goliath”, along with newer and larger additions to the event, ensuring that the course and festival area offer exciting experiences for both first-time participants and seasoned Warriors. Elite athletes have the opportunity to compete in one of the competitive waves offered for their chance to qualify for the Warrior Dash World Championship, an event that will offer a $100,000 purse prize. The festival area will feature live music, along with the addition of new beer selections, contests and activities.

Warriors not only tackle obstacles along the course, they also run to make a difference. Warrior Dash is excited to continue its partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2014. The St. Jude Warriors program encourages Warrior Dash racers to fundraise for St. Jude. Warriors who raise over $300 for St. Jude will gain exclusive access to a VIP area on site complete with private showers, catering, and a private lounge. Since the beginning of the partnership, Warrior Dash organizers have helped raise more than $8.4 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
