A brand new 10k trail run that sounds like it will live up to the word “challenge” in its name. A sound bite from the race organizer’s description:
This special, one-of-a-kind race takes place on beautiful, seldom-seen, private & protected mountain land in Fairview, NC. The landowners are allowing this to support our cause. A 10k loop run up the south side of Tater Knob, through Florence Nature Preserve, and back (note: part of this section uses ropes!)
It sounds like a fun event for a worthy cause (and, participants get a free pumpkin). From the race organizer’s website:
The Lord’s Acre Inc. is a local volunteer-based, not for profit corporation with a part-time manager, modestly paid to help organize the garden, coordinate volunteers, and teach gardening skills. In our first year we delivered over 3 tons of nutritious, organic vegetables to our local food bank The Lord’s acre builds community involvement, providing opportunity for volunteers to work side by side, learning organic gardening skills and helping to grow fresh local food to feed the hungry. Come work with us, grab a hoe and pitch in – we’d love to have you!
