Greenway Challenge 5k + 10k – April 11, 2021 – Black Mountain NC

2021 Greenway Challenge 5K & 10K

New In-Person Course

Three Ways to Run

Based on your personal level of COVID comfort – the 13th Annual Greenway Challenge 5k/10k race will offer three run/walk options > On Course 5/10K, DIY On Course 5/10K, or DIY Anywhere 5/10K.

In Person 5/10K: Sunday – April 11th

This is close to a “normal” run/walk. Runners can Start at any time between 12:00 and 4:00pm*. Participants will be “called up” to Start in socially distant quantities at approximately 15 minute intervals. At the Finish – runners are to proceed directly to their vehicles. We have initiated these plans to minimize touch points, avoid the need to congregate, and to adhere to pandemic Rules & Regs. Safety First.
Please refer to the COVID Safe Procedures and FAQ tabs above for specific Race Day Instructions. Overall and Age Group prizes will be awarded. * We ask that 10K runners/walker Start before 2:00pm.
