Grandfather Mountain Critter Crawl 5k – May 23, 2013 – Linville, NC

Grandfather Mountain Critter Crawl

This is a cool race, although I haven’t run it yet. It’s Thursday evening before Memorial Day weekend. A nice jaunt up to the top of Grandfather Mountain, a favorite of mine. I could see going up to the high country for a long weekend and kicking it off with this race. It’s only a 1,000 foot elevation gain (piece of cake if you’re the owner of one of those “badges of honor” for completing the Bearwallow Beast that climbs 1,300 feet in a 5k distance).

Here’s the rustic course map (click on the image to see a larger version):

Registration is capped at 500 runners (or, perhaps they refer to us as “critters” since we’re the ones doing the “crawl”). Online registration is available at Run Signup, or you may download a Grandfather Mountain Critter Crawl Entry Form 2013. For more information, visit the race website.
