It’s the 26th running of this baby. I’ve done this race quite a few times and can run the course by memory. It’s a great event and a great venue. It’s part of the Asheville Track Club Grand Prix Series once again.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
2014 marks the 26th annual running of the Sourwood 5k, a premiere running event that is part of the Sourwood festival. Also returning this year is the Cheshire Pump & Run where participants can earn deductions off their 5k time for doing bench presses pre-race. The Sourwood 5k starts and finishes at the beautiful Cheshire Fitness Club in Black Mountain, NC. The 5k takes place on well marked/supervised course. Perfect for all competition levels. All runners (including Pump & Run competitors) are eligible for the Open 5K awards based upon their actual finish time. Pump & Run athletes are also eligible for special awards based on their Pump & Run time.
