17th Annual Race to the Rock (5K run or 25-mile bike)
The grand finale of the 17th Annual Lake Lure Olympiad – a 3-day family sports festival showcases the beautiful scenery of Lake Lure, Rumbling Bald and Chimney Rock. The Race to the Rock is a challenging 5k run or 25-mile bike race that climbs 900 feet in the last 3 miles (a 7-9% grade) to finish at the base of Chimney Rock. The rewarding 75-mile views from the finish line overlooking Lake Lure are enough to take your breath away… or what’s left of it! This is the ONLY TIME you can ever run or bike up the Park road.
