The 14th Annual 2022 Greenway Challenge 5k and 10k will be on Saturday, April 9th.
This event is the primary annual fundraiser for the Black Mountain Greenways and Trails Committee and proceeds will support the Town Council approved phase two of the new walking path in Cragmont Park. Phase two will connect Lake Tomahawk to sidewalks at US 70 through Cragmont Park, and will require considerable expenditure on engineering for the crossing at Tomahawk Branch.
The race will begin and end in the parking lot across from the Town of Black Mountain Recreation and Parks Department building on Terry Estate Drive. The *NEW* course uses Terry Estate Drive and Vance Avenue to access several of Black Mountain’s greenways.
The route is the same for both the 5K and the 10K with runners who choose the longer distance completing the course 2 times. The course is a low traffic scenic course which will utilize the Oaks Trail, Garden Greenway, and the natural surface path around Veteran’s Park. Age group and overall awards will be given. A virtual option will also be offered.
Race registration and the results celebration will be held at the WNC Outdoor Collective on Black Mountain Avenue. We are planning on having some fun activities so spread the word! Sign up for the run can be found here:http://www.runsignup.com/blackmountaingreenwaychallenge
