This is the 2nd annual Jumpin’ for Java 5k in Black Mountain. I ran the inaugural race last year and it was a nice course with some aspects reminiscent of the Valentine 5k course. There was a little mishap last year – a missed turn on the course. The race organizers have assured me that there will be volunteers at every turn this year along with large signs.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
We are excited to announce the 2nd annual 5k and family fun run in Black Mountain, NC. The 5k will start at 10am followed by the family fun run at 10:05am.

Register as a team of 4, and you will have the chance to win best overall time based on combined results. After the race, hang out to enjoy coffee and coffee treats. If you love coffee, you’ll want to jump for java!
