The Mineral City 5k in Spruce Pine, NC is set for October 14, 2006. I haevn’t done this race before, but it sounds nice and these fall races in the mountain towns are lots of fun and usually quite beautiful because of fall color. There’s a fall colors walk so runners have the opportunity to convince the rest of their family to come along for reasons above and beyond the “hey, come see me race.”
The race starts at 8:30. For enyone who has run this race before it is apparently a new course (and a new starting time).
