It’s like some sort of convergence. There are two great up and down races — each quite challenging in their own right — happening with 24 hours of each other (23 actually).
First, Friday May 4th at 5 PM it’s the Rock 2 Rock 10k Trail Race at Camp Rockmont in Swannanoa. It’s a rugged trail run that’s part of the Asheville Mountain Sports Festival.
Next day, Saturday May 5th at 4 PM, it’s the Sunset Stampede in Asheville. It’s a 10 mile race (with a 4 mile version for those who seek less rubber in their legs) that climbs Sunset Mountain for five miles and turns around using alternate roads to head back downtown.
Let’s turnout for the Rubber Leg Back to Back. Who’s up for doing both?
