Winter Splash 8 Mile and 5k Trail Race – February 2, 2013 – Springmaid Mountain – Spruce Pine, NC

Winter in the Mountain North Carolina

Nothing like a couple of grueling afternoon (1 PM) trail races in the dead of winter at Springmaid Mountain to get the juices flowing. From the race organizers:

Blue Ridge Mountains and Winter Running! Rocky, Roots, Hills, Possible Snow, Ice, Rain, Mud – who knows? A river crossing near the end of the 8 miler, no river crossing in the 5k. A warm gathering after finish – hot will be beverages provided, and maybe a bonfire. Parking inside Springmaid. No shirt.

  • AWARDS: Everyone gets an award that is Made in America. Top M/F overall get award.
  • Race will be held on Saturday (unless a blizzard happens, then it will be moved to Sunday).
  • Decision will be made on race day morning if inclement weather.

Online registration is available at, or you may download a Winter Splash Registration Form.
