10K and 5K Race Course Description
The 10K and 5K courses are set above 5000 ft. in elevation with 360 degree views of the majestic mountains such as Grandfather, Mount Mitchell, and Snake Mountain. You will start out with a gradual climb before finding a mile of nice rolling pavement. For the 10K race, shortly after a fast descent you will cross the Beech Mountain Resort Ski Slopes, which open your eyes to 100-mile views of the surrounding High Country. It is all downhill after a 1/2 mile climb to the Land of Oz. This is a very tough, but fun course. Are you up to the challenge?
