Buncombe Summit Hill Climb – October 12, 2019 – 50 N Merrimon Ave – Woodfin NC

A challenging uphill race. Remember, what goes up, must come down.


The 3rd Annual Buncombe Summit Hill Climb 5k Walk/Run will be held at 9am on Saturday, October 12th, in scenic Woodfin, NC, less than a mile outside North Asheville.

The event runs straight up Reynolds Mountain for a 1,000 foot elevation gain before going back down the hill & returning to the finish line. Early bird registration is $25 & will open July 1, 2019, at www.buncombesummit.com. There will be a DJ (thank you OnPoint DJ!), prizes, t-shirts for pre-registered participants, a raffle, & a firefighter challenge course for kids.

The event is brought to you by the non-profit BeSafer that provides fire extinguishers & smoke detectors to Buncombe County fire departments for people in need & helps to support ongoing community needs through the Buncombe County Firefighters’ Association.
