The Beech Mountain ClimbMAX, presented by BeechMtn.com, is set to challenge all runners with a demanding course on Saturday, June 22nd.
The 10K and 5K course begin at 5057’ elevation near Town Hall. The first two miles provide an almost 400’ decent winding along the beautiful Beech Mountain Parkway toward the ski village highlighting the local Inns, Eateries, Golf Course and views. From that point the 10K takes a long, steep 807’ uphill climb to 5,443’, punctuated by several switchbacks and long-range vistas, just shy of the mountain’s summit with a multitude of elevation changes to follow.
The 5K turns off the parkway and into a variety of hill-laden residential neighborhoods before returning to the parkway and the finish line.
The routes replace the fairly challenging 5-mile course that had been used for several years, known as A Cool 5. “We wanted to take advantage of our altitude differentials, highlighting our descents, assents, and vistas as well as our beautiful township,” said race director Tim Fox of the Beech Mountain Parks & Recreation Department. “It will be unlike any other race that we know of on the East Coast.”
Entry fees include a T-shirt, goodie bags, and post-race activities.
“Endurance will be a key. There will be hairpin turns, bursts of assents and descents as well as long, grinding assents,” said Fox. “People are always looking for that challenge, for that one event that tests their ability; this is it!”
