Summer Splash Trail Races – Augut 27, 2016 – Springmaid Mountain – Spruce Pine NC

springmaid splash

The drive up to Springmaid Mountain is completely worth it for this fantastic event. Races put on by Mitchell Races always have a great welcoming feel and enthusiastic participants and volunteers. The Summer Splash, formerly known as the Springmaid Splash, has an exciting course that takes you through the river and pastures, up mountains, over boulders, and more. Registration should open soon.


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.
