The 10k and 5k are described as very challenging courses at the Springmaid Mountain retreat. They’ve been going strong since 2006 and you’re guaranteed to get wet during your race.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
This run is tough, wet, and wild. YOU WILL GET WET! You will run along flat fields next to the river, and through the river four times. Paths wind through mountain laurel, challenging HILLS, numerous switchbacks, singletracks, soft sand, alongside ponds, over roots and rocky spots. The entire loop is “run-able,” but is totally acceptable to walk parts of the course. It is a great SUMMER COOL DOWN! Spectators can easily view various sections of the race and are encouraged to beat the first river crossing.
