Another Busy Weekend

I have eleven area races identified in the month of June 2010 and five of those occur this weekend (June 4/5). Friday afternoon is the quite popular Chamber Challenge 5k that draws about 700 or so runners competing in teams and as individuals. The race starts and finishes at the Asheville Chamber of Commerce and features a nice Montford course.

Saturday morning features a 5k on pavement, an 8k on trails, a 10k on trails, and a downhill half marathon on mixed surfaces.

The Human Race 5k in Waynesville is fast and flat. It’s also on the Asheville Track Club Grand Prix. The Run on the Wildside 8k is at the North Carolina Arboretum and is mostly trails. The Daniel Boone Scramble 10k in Canton is a rugged trail race with a 2,000 foot vertical climb. And the Downhill @ Dawn Half Marathon at Ridgecrest (Black Mountain) is just what it says – a principally downhill half marathon starting at 6:00 AM.

Me? I’m doubling up. The Chamber Challenge and the Run on the Wildside 8k. Happy running and be sure to stop back by and post a comment about your experience.
