This is actually two races — Run to the Rock which is a 5k run and Ride to the Rock which is a 7k bike ride. The bike ride starts at 7:30 and that’s good. It gives them time to get out of the way as runners bolt from the starting line at 8:00 AM and begin agonizing our way from the entrance of Chimney Rock Park on a 7% grade up to the parking area. PR race? Uh-uh. But a nice way to start a Sunday. I’ll be there.
Registration is at The Old Rock Cafe just outside the park’s entrance. Registration starts at 6:30 AM.
