In the spirit of true mountain running, we bring to you The Billy Goats Gruff Climb
July 22 2017
Come experience true Mountain Racing at the Wolf Ridge Ski Slopes in the midst of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
Wolf Ridge Ski Resort
578 Valley View Circle
Mars Hill, NC
The Hill Climb, 5k, & 10k Distances are separated by time to allow those crazy enough to attempt all three races.
But why stop there? We’ve thrown in a hill climb (roughly .25 miles) straight up the steepest part of the mountain! If you can run up this course without using your hands, you will earn legendary status!
We also have a kids race (roughly 1k) that will allow them to get a taste of Mountain Running!
This race is brought to you by the RUN828 Foundation and Foot Rx Running in Asheville. This collaboration, made up of trail runner’s in Western North Carolina, is dedicated to the running community and the WNC running area, that we call home. Our specialty is creating and hosting grass roots trail races on the best trails the Appalachian Mountains have to offer. Annually we bring the ever popular Frosty Foot races at Tsali, The Yeti or Not? 25k in Dupont, and the Fontandango races at Fontana Village, Rooster’s Revenge 30k in Mills River, NC. We are also pleased to host The Healthy Kids Running Series, monthly $5.00 5ks to support local charities, and a fall Cross Country Series. Come join us for another amazing trail race!
