The sixth running of this popular pair of afternoon races that start and finish at the Pisgah Brewing Company near the Black Mountain/Swannanoa line. For those of you who are on the fence about this one, if you like beer, you’ll get a freebie after the race in their nice, festive, grassy picnic area where runners mingle post-race to tell stories about their running adventure. Both races start at 2 PM. There’s a new race director this year – Peter Ripmaster – the energetic, always smiling guy who runs the Black Mountain Running Company and has finished marathons in just about every one of these United States to raise money for cancer research (learn more at his Ripmaster 50 Donation Page).
