Who can pass up pancakes and bacon at the finish line? Expect some fast finishes as hungry runners burn up the last quarter mile. Here’s more information from the race organizers:
This 2nd Annual 5K at the Mountain Sports Festival is family-friendly and encourages movement (RISE) and effort (SHINE) bright and early on a Saturday morning and benefits Girls on the Run of WNC! The easy 5K course runs through Carrier Park along the French Broad River. We will have a yoga instructor leading stretches before/after the 5K event. Shiny attire highly recommended!
All runners get to enjoy a yummy post-race pancake and bacon breakfast! Spectators are encouraged to enjoy our Pancake Breakfast for $5.
Girls on the Run of WNC is a local non-profit with a mission to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
