Sourwood 5k – August 13, 2016 – Cheshire Fitness Club – Black Mountain NC


Who could think of a cooler and more unique age group award than a jar of honey? This amazing prize is just one of the reasons that the Sourwood 5k has remained a popular WNC race for many years. It looks like online registration is not open yet, but check the race website for more information, as registration will open soon.


2016 marks the 28th running of the Sourwood 5K, a premiere road run/walk held August 13th in conjunction with the Sourwood Festival. Also returning this year is the Cheshire Pump & Run where participants earn deductions off their 5K times for doing bench presses pre-race. Both events are held at the Cheshire Fitness Club in Black Mountain.

The well marked/supervised 5K course features rolling hills, shade, three aid stations and lots of fun.

Race organizers are hosting a practice run each Tuesday night in July and August until the Tuesday prior to the race. The free practices start at 5:30 p.m. following the exact course of the Sourwood 5K. Athletes of any pace or experience are welcome to join this free 5K group run starting at the Cheshire Fitness Club. No registration is required but reservations are suggested – we don’t want to leave without you.
