This is a great opportunity to get inside Grove Stone and Sand for a practice run. Whether you’re planning on running Rock the Quarry 5k or the Asheville Super Spartan race this is a fine way to get a taste of the quarry. For more information check out the Facebook Event Page.
ROCK THE QUARRY PRACTICE RUN – Wednesday (8/5/15) – 5:45pm
Due to some construction in the pit, we’re going to run around the quarry (4 miles) instead of running the actual RTQ course through the pit. The good news…you get to see this view!!!
We’re going to bring everyone around to the BACK entrance at Grove Stone off of Lake Eden Road in Black Mountain (same road as Owen High School & Camp Rockmont). Take Lake Eden Road all the way until it dead-ends and the back gate to Grove Stone will be on the right. I’ll have some signs pointing you in the right direction. Turn left on the gravel road once you pass thru the gate and you’ll run right into the starting line. Park on the gravel road. Make sure you come around to the back gate at Grove Stone & Sand Co. at the end of Lake Eden Road, the front gate will be locked.
We’ll meet between 5:15 – 5:45pm and we’ll start the group run at 5:45pm sharp. I’ll have some water available at the end of the run. Feel free to run at your own pace.
We’ll be hosting the Black Mountain Running Co. Posse once again and anyone else that would like to join us. It’s an excellent opportunity for folks that are running the Spartan race on August 29th to get familiar with the Grove Stone property.
If you have any questions, call my cell 230-2774. Thanks and I hope to see you on the 5th! Jon
