Lake Lure Olympiad & Annual Race to the Rock
Lake Lure Olympiad & Annual Race to the Rock
Lake Lure, North Carolina, USA
Late August
Permitted just once a year, cyclists and runners alike eagerly await the chance to climb from the entrance of Chimney Rock State Park to the top of the pinnacle Chimney Rock more than 3 miles up. The Park’s winding entrance road climbs uphill an average of 7-9%, but the stunning 75-mile panoramic views of Lake Lure and the Hickory Nut Gorge at the finish line are well worth the effort. The Race to the Rock on Sunday is the last piece of the 9th annual Lake Lure Olympiad’s “3 Races in 3 Days” challenge beginning with the 10K Dam Run on Friday and Lake Lure Triathlon on Saturday. Considered one of the most scenic race weekends on any calendar, the views will take your breath away if the climbs dont first. Making the sports festival weekend even more unique is the multitude of events for kids and families. Get your competition and vacation fix all in one trip.
