17th Annual Race to the Rock (5K run)
End the race weekend on a high note, literally! Starting at the Best View Motel on the west side of Chimney Rock Village, the course takes you through the entrance of Chimney Rock State Park and climbs up the switchback road ending at the base of the Rock with a stunning 75-mile panoramic view of the Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure. This is the only time you can ever run up the Park road. Register here.
