Sourwood 5k


Planning to run in the 22nd running of the Sourwood 5K on August 14, 2010 in Black Mountain?

Race organizers are hosting a practice run each Wednesday night – starting July 7th until Wednesday August 11th. The free practices start at 5:30 p.m. and follow the exact course of the Sourwood 5K. Athletes of any pace or experience are welcome to join this free 5K practice run starting at the Cheshire Fitness Club. No registration is required but reservations are requested by calling 669-1092 or e-mailing

Mark your calendar for Saturday August 14, 2010.  Head to the Cheshire Fitness Club in Black Mountain for a great 5k.  I’ve done this three times before and it’s a very nice course and well run race.

2010 marks the 22nd annual running of the Sourwood 5k, a premiere running event that is part of the Sourwood festival. Also returning this year is the Cheshire Pump & Run where participants can earn deductions off their 5k time for doing bench presses pre-race.

That’s right – you can add a dose of bench pressing to your morning punishment because running as fast as you can for 3.1 miles is, well, just not enough.

Here’s what the course looks like (click for a larger image) …
