There are at least five racing choices in the greater WNC area this weekend.
First there’s the Orchard 4 Miler, a nice off-road race in and around the Altapass Orchard in Spruce Pine. If you’re looking for extreme, maybe the Quest for the Crest 10k in Burnsville is right for you. It’s billed as the world’s hardest 10k with 6,500 feet of elevation gain. Have a few extra Wheaties if you’re doing that one. If you’re looking for a nice, comfortable garden variety 5k think about the Read Write and Run 5k in Woodfin, the No Excuse for Abuse 5k in Marion or the Run to the Nest 5k in Wilkesboro.
